Find and meet Edinburgh- based metal workers, laser cutters, sackmakers, shellac suppliers, framers, mills, seamstresses, letterpress, water jet cutters, risograph printers, electronics, mould makers, workshops and slipcasters to name a few.
Creative Edinburgh and Make Works are inviting 30 designers and 30 manufacturers to the same room, to have a couple beers, and enjoy some speedy networking. This a bit like speed dating, but for finding new projects and contacts to work with locally (and most importantly, to Make Work!)
Hastened conversations, buzzers, score cards— Maker Speed Dater is an opportunity to have a conversation, learn about what can be made in Edinburgh and, who knows, maybe find that factory you've been looking for for months.
