We know that many artists, designers and makers take inspiration from a huge variety of natural sources, from the tiniest of microscopic structures to vast landscapes and everything in between. We’re particularly looking forward to welcoming Tess Paton to Making Space early in […]

Making Space is a great place to hold a workshop – the purpose built facilities have everything you need and the space is light and airy. You are always assured a warm welcome. Kate O’Connell is such an inspirational teacher, gently guiding us through the craft of Fused Glass whilst still challenging us to try new techniques and ideas.

I really enjoyed the Open Studios Weekend – What a nice change to spend time with creative friendly people in such a lovely environment.
Just had a T-shirt screen-printing party for my daughters 9th Birthday party and 9 of her friends. I was worried that the 2 hours we had would be far to long and that the kids would get bored but in fact the time went very fast and everyone had a fabulous time and they left with a t-shirt they had designed themselves.

Out of all the venues that employ me as a freelancer, Making Space have always been the most professional, supporting and welcoming. I enjoy every experience I get the opportunity to teach there and their resources, space and team all add to the quality and uniqueness of the venue.
We had a fantastic team outing to Making Space, the workshop spaces and teaching were exceptional and we all loved our finished necklaces. I would recommend Making Space to any business for a great team building experience.
I have taken my children to a lot of workshops – this was by far the best. The teacher, the venue and the other staff were all FANTASTIC – we could have stayed for at least a week.
