Associate Makers Scheme
Making Space has been closely working with makers over the last decade and has a range of events, services and support available to help you develop your creative professional practice. We are currently networked with over 160 makers including current and previous tenants and associates who teach, collaborate and work with us.
We have seven on site individual studios, which are available to hire on a monthly basis. The studios are designed as creative start up spaces for emerging makers. The very nature of this means our community of tenants is always changing. Tenants come to Making Space, build their businesses and in time other opportunities present themselves and they move onwards and upwards, taking with them the valuable knowledge, skills and business acumen that they’ve developed during their time with us. This of course means we’re always on the look out for new makers to join us.
If having a studio at Making Space is a prospect that appeals to you, then please take the time to visit the studio page of our website, where you can download an application form and see current rates and Level 3 A.M.S. Membership benefits.
Launched in May 2017, to coincide with our 10th year celebrations, the new Making Space Associate Maker Scheme (A.M.S.) aims to reach out and provide support to a wider creative community outside of our seven on-site studios. Becoming a member gives you access to a wide range of benefits and welcomes you to become part of Making Space’s wider creative community.
The A.M.S. has been designed to support the development of your ideas, projects and practice. We want to help makers build their network of contacts and ultimately help develop their creative career. Membership is open to makers at all stages of their careers.
The A.M.S. acts as a primary gateway to a host of services for makers from all disciplines and levels of experience. This includes new opportunities to show work, specialist business advice, marketing support, networking opportunities and practical help to move your business forward. Along with discounts and promotional offers, the A.M.S. will also give you access to talks and workshops led by a range of guest speakers.
There are three different levels of Membership to the A.M.S.:
Level 1 is a free membership open to all. To join please enter your email address in the box below and click the subscribe button.
Level 2 is a ‘by application and paid’ membership for makers who work from their own studios. Those interested in joining level 2 A.M.S membership can apply by submitting an application form. Applications will be considered by a Making Space panel. Once selected Level 2 Members pay a monthly or annual membership fee and are required to sign a membership agreement with Making Space.
Level 3 is a paid membership exclusively for current tenants.
Before submitting we strongly recommend that you take a look at the benefits of membership and Making Space’s aims, objectives and criteria.
