In 2018 we are launching a range of courses here at Makers Quarter! It has been our ambition for over 2 years to start hosting lessons in our shared workshop in Manchester and we have been working towards making this happen for the past 6 months. We hope to inspire the local community to take time away from smartphone screens, create something or learn a new skills and meet people in the process!
In collaboration with local makers we will be hosting upholstery, furniture making, woodwork, and leather making courses, ranging from weekend to 4 day courses. We'll keep adding more courses throughout the year!
We're hugely proud to offer these courses as we believe learning new skills should be accessible for all, and nothing is more satisfying than taking home something you have made from scratch.
Our first course is a weekend upholstery course in collaboration with Simion Hawtin-Smith on 17th / 18th Feb. Over the 2 days you will create a bespoke cube stool and learn traditional upholstery techniques in the process.
