Being a freelance creative is brilliant but it can also be quite isolating and so we hope these bi-monthly sessions will become a regular opportunity to get out to the studio and socialise with other likeminded creatives.
The sessions will take place on Monday evenings from 6-8pm. The sessions will be free to attend but like our MNL’s we will ask makers to confirm they’re coming using eventbrite. This allows us to confirm attendance numbers and keep track of those attending.
The upcoming 2019 dates are as follows:
20 May, 22 July, 23 September, 18 November 2019
The structure of the sessions will evolve and change as those attending can help shape and mould them to what they want/need.
It might be a general networking / get to know one another session. We may look at bringing along professionals to lead talks or discussions, they may be creative and hands on. Maker Mondays will also provide makers the opportunity to feed into Making Space going forth, sharing your needs and thoughts on what we’re doing and how we can evolve together, with our space being best use for you/other makers!
For the Maker Monday on May 20, we will be discussing the pros & cons of Open Studio events, how to make them work for you and will be discussing Hampshire Open Studios.
We would love to invite all our Associate makers to to create an exhibition which will remain open for Hampshire Open Studios. We will also use this maker Monday to discuss the options of the exhibition and what it might look like.
After that discussion there will be a chance to network with other makers and chat to Making Space about how we can support you and your business and how we might be able to work together on projects, through room hire or with mentoring or advice. Simple drinks and nibbles provided but please feel free to contribute.
Free parking is available in the car park behind Making Space after 6pm. You can book your free place on the May Maker Monday by clicking here. Please feel free to share with other makers and invite anyone else you think might be interested.
