What’s happening at Making Space

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. Making Space aim to make crafting available to everyone. As well as subsidised courses they also offer bursaries to make craft accessible to all. 

If you haven’t heard of us until now, we’re delighted that Postcode Publications is giving us a little space each issue to tell you all about what has been happening, and what is coming up, in our thriving craft centre.

Making Space
Making Space is a craft organisation based in Leigh Park, Hampshire with impact across the UK. We literally make space for people and organisations to get involved in craft whether physically in our own building or digitally in our virtual networks and events. 
Raising the profile of craft in all its forms, we work with local and national arts organisations, contributing to debate, supporting makers and providing creative opportunities.

Through our outreach projects we work with partners including schools, children’s centres, family learning environments and retirement homes.

Our specially tailored projects inspire, challenge skill-up, engage and build new audiences for the sector. We enable people to develop new ways of thinking about the craft and experience first-hand the important presence of craft in everyday life.
