Making Space is a craft organisation and registered charity based in Leigh Park, Hampshire, UK. We literally make space for people and organisations involved in craft, through a programme of workshops and experiences.
We offer both first-time experiences of a range of crafts and work with those who want to take their skills to the next level. We host a variety of ceramics workshops that range from basic hand building to using our three potters’ wheels. The studio space, our potters’ wheels and our two kilns can be hired individually, so everyone can access the benefits of the crafts. We want to enable people to develop new ways of thinking about craft and experience first-hand the important presence of craft in everyday life.
Raising the profile of craft in all its forms, we work with local and national arts organisations, contributing to debate, supporting makers and providing opportunities. Our specially tailored projects inspire, challenge, skill-up, engage and build new audiences for the sector. They have lasting local impact, and are often transformational for participants.
