Making Space is Havant’s very own community craft charity, based in their purpose-built premises in the heart of Leigh Park.
As well as running regular classes in a variety of craft forms, Making Space has a busy outreach programme, providing subsidised activities in the community, and is home to a number of professional makers who have their own studios on site.
From Leigh Park to London - success for local fashion designer.
Making Space says a fond farewell to Cabrini Roy, who started her fashion brand as a resident maker in 2019. Her entrepreneurial brilliance meant she was able to thrive even during the pandemic, developing a suite of online dressmaking workshops that gained subscriptions from across the globe. Now, Cabrini is taking the next step in her phenomenal journey - she is part of the British Fashion Council and is moving to London, one of the fashion capitals of the world.
This is exactly the sort of success story we love to see at Making Space. Having first walked through our doors in 2012 for two weeks’ work experience, Cabrini is now at the forefront of the British fashion scene. We wish her the very best of luck!
