What 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 that vary from dress making to drone hacking.
The Makerspace is also open for use by groups that are already up and running as well as those just starting out.
Tickets are FREE but please book to avoid disapointment as places are limited.
