    MakerspaceWhat will you make?

    Makerspace is a space to make and mend, improve and embellish, and have a go at contemporary craft or digital endeavours. It is a shared workshop and meeting point where art, technology, craft and design are invited to converge. Makers, fixperts, artists, 'hackers' and crafters of all kinds are invited to come along and get involved. We have exciting events for all ages that vary from dress making to drone hacking.
