Saturday Workshops

Make something fab in the Fab Lab with our Saturday Workshops

Feeling creative? Come along to our Saturday Workshops in the Fab Lab and get making!

Specially tailored for beginners and those wanting to try out our machines, each workshop is a snappy 1.5 hours. You'll learn all the basics and come away with your own customised creation

Each workshop has a small admission fee to cover the cost of materials, with everything else provided free of charge. There are five places for each session, giving you a unique opportunity to learn in a friendly and supported environment. 

Take a look at our workshops below and book using the links.

Please note, the Fab Lab is for those aged 9 or over. Children aged 9-11 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian. Accompanying parent/guardians not wishing to take part in the workshops don't need to book for themselves, just for the child.
