Portland Works. Works.

Portland Works is an incredible organisation of individuals and businesses near Brammal Lane in Sheffield…based in an old ‘Integrated Works’, the building has been connecting craftsmen together for 130years. More recently, the tenants have been involved in fighting a planning application filed by the buildings property-speculator owner to turn the works into flats. They hope to soon be able to buy their Works for £675,000, and run it as a Industry and Provident Society for Community Benefit, offering an ethical investment to potential shareholders.

Basically, the Portland Works is a celebration of making stuff and its importance to us as individuals as well as the vitality of our cities…
