Come to meet the following groups and organisations for discussion about volunteering and collaborative possibilities. You might like to host your own table – there are only 15 (so a handful left). One of the highlights for me will surely be The Craft Workshop’s potter David Helm… who is actually making teapots and offering you tea with a special tea ceremony!
We are a team of artists and makers working to develop a space for people to share resources and skills, paving the way for ongoing collaboration and connections to happen.
The space will support makers in the town, whether they are using digital or analogue tools, fostering a productive cross over of different kinds of making, enabling people to share knowledge and skills with each other and the public.
Amy and Rachael will be on hand to share our plans so far and ways you can get involved. Come and chat to us!
Following 20 year in the textile industry as a designer and product development manager I’m now in my 10th year at the University.
I work for the School of Art, Design and Architecture as Design Resource coordinator and as a CAD & IT Technician demonstrating and supporting students with a wide range of design software and equipment.
About a year ago I decided I really needed to get away from the computer a while and start Making again real things with my hands, I needed something portable that could build over time – Enamel covered wire, resin & various embellishment methods later, these are some of the results.
CollabHub is all about supporting local practitioners and opening opportunities for knowledge and skills sharing.
What would you like to do in your community that you can’t do at the moment because you don’t have the right stuff, space or skills? Do you have tools that aren’t used all of the time, a meeting room that’s sometimes empty or time to show a neighbour how to cook healthy meals on a budget?
Wouldn’t it be great if we could all make use of what we’ve got, when we need it?
