Hello! My name’s Paul (he/him) and I’ve lived in South London for about 16 years, in Rotherhithe. I came to the open evening last night and I’ve just signed up my direct debit, so I’m hoping to be a fully fledged member very shortly.
I worked for a while in a factory making factory machinery, did a degree in electronic engineering, I’ve done quite a bit of woodworking in the past, and I’m looking forward to being able to use all this useful machinery (that I don’t possibly have space for at home) once again. I’m also really excited about things I haven’t had the chance to use, like resin printing, CNC and laser cutting. I think a lot of my projects will be somehow related to music: I play a few mainly stringed instruments, including some unusual ones like shamisen (in my profile photo) and sanshin and mess around with making electronic music and making the things to make electronic music.
I’m also very interested to hear about cycle routes from Rotherhithe to the space that avoid some of the hills!
