MAKEROOM turns Turf Projects into a collective workshop of endless making possibilities.
MakeRoom uses workshops, drop-in sessions, and open-access facilities to turn Turf into a shared exploratory studio. A cross between maker space, resource library, online video tutorial, swap shop & scrap store with materials, equipment & knowledge shared.
Do you have skills to share? Or do you want a testing space to try running a workshop? Maybe you want a chance to develop techniques or skills collaboratively. Collaborate with a collective? MakeRoom is an open platform for process showcasing making, experimenting, and playing. From December 2022 – April 2023, Croydon residents and visitors from further afield will be invited to play, potter & ponder. Together we’ll experiment, share skills, learn & expand processes, and trial open-access facilities to explore an unmet demand in the borough.
Turf has invited Resolve Collective, Theresa Dodzro, Print Collective, Solo Wood Recycling, Fashion Meets Music, Heather Lawrence, Daisy Young, Rebecca Sainsot-Reynolds and Rosie Crane Eckmire to set up and/or run various facilities and workshops across Turf. Facilities in ceramics, wood working, furniture building, textiles, photography, and printing; will be available. Visit the gallery to read our library, attend workshops across our four floors, trial workshop memberships, order at-home kits from our website, and log in to online events.
MakeRoom is generously funded by the Arts Council England and Croydon Council.
