The Making Rooms

Like making things? So do we! We’ve brought back our ever popular solar-system-necklace-making-machine! Come by the stand, type in your birthdate and ta-da, a necklace showing where the planets were on the day you were born!

We will also be helping you to design your own planets and solar systems onto greetings cards, soldering light up badges, discussing ideas around the future of repair and 3D printing all sorts of things!

The Making Room’s staff and dedicated volunteers will show you what they have been working on and how they design and make all the gadgets and gizmos they come up with.

The Making Rooms is a digital creative space that was founded in Blackburn to help turn people into makers and makers into entrepreneurs. Each week the team prototype products, hire out their machines to new entrepreneurs and run a co-working space for creatives starting new businesses. They also run an open lab every Friday and Saturday to get people into making and give them the skills they need to develop their creative careers.
