CCW has a strong making tradition and provides excellent making workshops, studios, resources and specialist staff. We are currently exploring the concept of MakerSpace and currently developing an informal cross disciplinary community exploring and supporting emergent digital making practice through safe-fail experimentation with new & old materials and technologies. 

It'll be a great opportunity to community build & build networks.

More details will be posted here on the CCW MakerSpace group pages.

What is a MakerSpace? 

MakerSpace provides an informal and cross disciplinary place and community for exploring and supporting emergent practice through safe-fail experimentation with new & old materials and technologies. A MakeSpace community requires a rich variety of expertise, peer support, knowledge sharing, specialist equipment, tools and support.

MakerSpace Examples

The UCL MakeSpace ‘The Institute of Making is a multidisciplinary research club for those interested in the made world’ its a great example of a large size Makerspace, but is dedicated resource for UCL student use, the space provides a little bit of everything to support making experimentation all close to hand with specialist support.
