Maker Space - Join In!

Unleash your creativity

What’s a Maker space? If you want the fancy answer, it’s a place where ideas are sparked into life, where collaboration makes inventions flourish and where all experiments are brilliant - with no right or wrong answers.

If you want the practical answer, it’s a place where you can come and get stuck in to loads of interesting kit, from good old craft bits to high-tech whizz-bangs such as 3D printers, arduinos, circuit boards, samplers and wearables.

If you don’t know what all these things are, don’t worry. Just come along to a session and you’ll meet all kinds of techies, artists, geeks and garden shed inventors, who’ll be thrilled to point you in the right direction. Bounce ideas off each other and get buzzing with exciting craft, design, music, art and invention projects. Share your own skills and learn some new ones at York Explore's Maker space.

We're running various activities and drop - in sessions over summer and autumn - Maker Mondays, Hack Camps, 9-Bit Orchestra Youth Club and more.
