About Makers Space

A celebration of making led by some of Glasgow’s finest designers!

Glasgow is home to a vibrant community of designer/makers and we want to shout about it! Come meet our designer/makers, get involved, get behind the scenes access and if you fancy it get hands-on designing and making!

Facilitating Makers Space, we are delighted to have Ju Ju Books; lighting designer, Kate Colin; ceramist Sally Hackett; graphic design duo A Day Out; textile designer Laura Spring; the Ok No Studio and embroidery with Chloe Patience.

Come join us at Makers Space and lose yourself in the awesome world of design


(While the event is family-friendly, most of the hands-on activities have been designed with teenagers and adults in mind.)

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Makers Space are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
