Factory Talks

Our INSPIRE Talks invite you into the world of inspirational makers to find out more about their journeys, motivations and processes.

INSPIRE Talks take place each month, and the format is usually of a live talk or discussion followed by a question and answer session (Q and A).

Since March 2020, we have moved these talks online as a result of social distancing rules. Although we can’t be together in person, we very much encourage the shared drinking of tea and use of the chat function within the talk to ask questions and share ideas!

After you have registered for a talk you will receive an e-mail with a link to watch the talk and instructions about how to join in the chat if you’d like to. If you require any support in using the online talk technology, please let us know.

For more information please e-mail

In the first of our new Making the Difference strand of talks (which explore making as a tool of social change), join us in conversation with Hack the Pandemic, Airway Medical and independent face shield producer Jo Symmons.

Together we’ll explore how they went from their day jobs to mobilising armies of volunteers and producing industrial quantities of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) and healthcare products from garages, gardens and village halls around Bristol and Bath.
