The Makery Bath offers creative craft workshops in the city: Take home new skills and something handmade!
We’ve always enjoyed the lovely sense of fulfilment from making things ourselves…and started to notice more and more people joining in the Make revolution. Viva the revolution!
So we decided to give up our comfortable safe jobs and follow our hearts. The idea for the Makery came around Christmas 2008 with the dream of building a creative hub where people could come and learn countless new skills as well as having lots of fun in a relaxed and welcoming place.
We are committed to helping anyone who wants to be terrifically creative learn to live more resourcefully and have thoroughly good fun!
It’s about showing you how to save yourself money and hopefully be less dependent on big faceless corporations. If you can make it yourself you won’t need to buy it. Broken and you can mend it you won’t need to replace it. Old and you can reinvent it you won’t need to update it!
Like the idea? It makes perfect sense to us!
A little bit about our story
Since opening The Makery, Bath in 2009, we’ve taught almost 70,000 people a new skill! We’ve moved premises and are now settled in a beautiful Georgian house in the centre of Bath. We’ve also been running our workshops from John Lewis, Oxford Street since April 2015. Our lovely range of kits and merchandise is distributed worldwide, as are our 2 books. And we run creative events with various businesses such as W Hotels, Soho House and Stylist.
