Blackpool Makerspace is OPEN

It has been a long haul, as can be seen by the restoration pictures on here stretching back over the months. More building work than ‘Making’, but we finally opened our doors to the public at 6pm on Friday 23rd October 2015. There is still much to do, but we are now semi operational.

The Friday evening event and all day Saturday event is our participation in Make-Shift-Do a Nation wide event organised by the craft council.  https://www.craftscouncil.org.uk

More information about make-shift-do can be found here: www.make-shift-do.org.uk
