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 in its home to a number of professional makers who have their own studios on site.
Here is what is coming up in our thriving craft centre.
Making Space will again be hosting an inspiring maker-curated winter craft fair, Make Merry. We will be transforming Making Space and over three days will play host to makers showcasing innovative and beautiful crafts & perfect handmade presents to buy with prices starting from £5.
Come present shopping, treat yourself or be inspired by all the wonderful makers.
