Following the success of our popular A Space To Make sessions for adults, we are launching a brand new ASTM YOUTH project funded by the Big Lottery Fund.
These sessions will take place fortnightly at Making Space and we can take up to 12 young people per session.
The sessions are suitable for local creative young people aged 10-14.
ASTM YOUTH is FREE and will take place from 4.30pm-6pm and there is no need to book, just turn up. It’ll be first come first served and all materials are supplied.
The sessions won’t be taught but there will be an artist and volunteer on hand to help and a box of exciting materials to inspire you to get crafting!
This project provides local young people the opportunity to get creative and use our space to make!
The idea is simple; we, as a creative venue will provide you with “a space to make”. The sessions will be free to attend, although as we are a charity we will welcome donations, and attendees are invited to come along and bring your own crafty projects to work on.
We hope that over time ‘a space to make’ community will evolve, and the regular sessions will provide an opportunity to get out of the house and meet other people. You needn’t be a professional, quite the opposite, we welcome home crafters and all levels and ages. Bring along your knitting, your current creative project or even your colouring book and pencils. It doesn’t matter what you’re working on, just that people are coming together and getting creative.
We hope that by providing ‘a space to make’, Making Space will in turn meet more local people and more people will benefit from the brilliant venue and resources we have here. We also know that taking part in creative pursuits is great for personal well being and general happiness!
The sessions will be on the first and third Tuesday of every month, from 10am – 12noon.
Maker Mondays is a brand new opportunity launching in January 2019, giving Makers a chance to informally get together throughout the year.
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 like-minded creatives.
The sessions will take place on Monday evenings from 6-8pm. The sessions will be free to attend but like our Maker Networking Lunches 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 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 first session on Monday January 21, we’d like it to keep it simple with a ‘getting to know you’ session. All those attending can do a short 5-10minute talk about them/their practice/their work (please feel free to bring along samples of work) so everyone can get to know one another in a relaxed and informal way. Afterwards there will be a chance for general networking over some free drinks provided by Making Space.
Free parking is available in the car park behind Making Space after 6pm. You can book your free place on the first ever Maker Monday by clicking here. Please feel free to share with other makers and invite anyone else you think might be interested.
We’ve organised this exciting workshop as part of our ongoing series of short taster sessions which allow you to try before you commit to a longer or more expensive course.
We have invited Sarah Macrae along once again to teach the correct art form of stringing beads for jewellery. Participants are welcome to purchase their own glass beads/stones/pearls to work with or they can use plastic beads provided.

About the twilight
A chance to learn more about the approach taken by Barncroft Primary School during a new pilot project – Learning Through Craft and how they worked with professional gilder, Richard Walker. Learn more about how children got involved and what they learnt. Find out about Artsmark from Lorraine Cheshire, Education Development Manager, Artswork and about Arts Award from Lynne Dick, Director at Making Space.
Learning Through Craft Took place in 2017/18 and aimed to ignite teachers’ interest in and understanding of the value of craft in children’s creative, cultural and intellectual development. It aimed to inspire teachers and craft artists to exchange knowledge and skills; become advocates for craft in education; making craft accessible to and understood by young children.
Making Space is a craft centre based in the heart of Leigh Park, specialising in community and schools engagement projects which offer the highest quality experiences led by designer-crafts professionals.
