The Making Room
24th April - 29 May 2015

The Making Room brings together the work of an eclectic group of designers and makers working within a broad range of practices across Scotland. The project consists of a resource space located at South Block that includes objects pertaining to practice, relevant texts and the shared thoughts of the participating designers about making. The presentation is also accompanied by a programme of participatory making activity located in various studios and making-spaces across Glasgow and Edinburgh (please see included workshop programme). All workshops and talks are open to the public and creative professionals and are free of charge for participants.

The Making Room is aimed at exploring why and how designers make across a wide variety of practices from arduino programming to letterpress printing. The inclusion of the resource space and participatory workshops explores the contrast between research activity and hands-on experience and highlights the importance of both activities within design and making practices.

The project is designed to be generous in nature, offering great opprtunities for practitioners to explore, discuss and share what they do with their peers, the public and other creative professionals.
