Making Courses

The Factory’s making courses and workshops are designed to provide an easy and accessible introduction to our digital fabrication tools and workshop facilities.

We guide and support trainees through each step of the design and making process, whether they’re creating laser cut jewellery, Christmas decorations, pieces of furniture, or something else.

We also offer enterprise training to budding entrepreneurs and growth businesses.

Upcoming courses:

Making It – Design | Making | Tech

Learn new skills and expand your horizons in this exciting digital design and making programme.

Through practical sessions, you’ll learn a range of skills including how to use digital design software, follow a design process, and operate machinery including laser cutters and 3D Printers. You will also have access to one-to-one mentoring and supported sessions where you can experiment, prototype and test ideas for your own project.

Alongside this, there will be a schedule of specialist workshops in topics ranging from Wearable Technology to Virtual Reality, to broaden your knowledge of digital technologies and potential applications.

Making It will run from May to July 2019, and will culminate in a showcase event where you’ll have the chance the present what you’ve made to potential industry employers.
