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.
