ETL was the UK’s first Tool Library, promoting sharing as a way of reducing our environmental impact. For us, ETL is also about building a community as well as building things. We believe in access over excess.

We have two wood workshops in Leith and Portobello, two storage units, a pop up location and an electric van. We run an employability programme, a series of volunteer builds, and a residency programme for young makers. As well as borrowing tools to use at home, our members access our workshops several times a week, usually evenings and weekends.

ETL is offering FREE memberships to any NHS staff showing their staff ID card. This can be claimed in the first 3 months after ETL opens up again. Contact ETL for more details
