Make is an open access workshop in the city's north docks, weʼre open to members, residents and the public, and host a range events and courses. We have a small selection of hand tools already but to be able to achieve our goal of a fully stocked workshop for people to use, we need more. We want people to give their unused tools a new home and put them back to work. Sheds, garages and spare rooms all over, filled with unused tools could help a small business grow, a self employed person experiment or bring joy to a hobbyist.
Make is about challenging conventions and ways that things get made. We encourage the creativity of all kinds of makers by inspiring people to do things differently and together in shared spaces. We aim to create repeated opportunities for people to develop and increase their independence as makers by working with us in our community of independent people. Driven by our own beliefs in inclusivity, fairness and environmentalism, we created this workshop as a social space as much as a workspace.
Make is growing swiftly from pop-up to permanent. Starting with hand tools, we will continue to invest in core equipment. We’ll be combining everything from woodwork and welding to 3-D printers, laser cutting and CNC milling. We will house a photographic dark room and a textile and fashion space with industrial sewing machines, alongside ceramics and an up-cycling area.
Make Liverpool is the culmination of three years of research, planning and preparation from Alex Kelly, Kirsten Little and Liam Kelly who also run a creative space in the Baltic Triangle’s Elevator Studios, creating a hub for small businesses and makers to grow and develop projects and ideas.
Occupying 18,000 square feet of warehouse space on Regent Street, at the heart of Liverpool's north docks. It’s slap bang in the middle of the city’s spiritual engine room, where things have been made and fixed for hundreds of years. Carving out a reputation as the new destination for creatives and culture vultures.
