Events Programme

We are currently developing a pilot events programme. Booking details will be posted HERE as individual events are confirmed, but here’s an introduction to what we have planned.

Factory Visits 

Factory Visits aim to dive deeper into one process or material. We want to team up with some of Birmingham’s most interesting and established workshops and factories to show  production processes in action. This is an excellent opportunity for manufacturers to field the most common questions from potential clients in one go, and meet designers, makers and artists from across the West Midlands who are interested in making work which utilises local skills and facilities.

Manufacturers, workshops and material suppliers – if you are interested in hosting a visit then get in touch HERE

And if you’d like come along then sign up to our mailing list (at the bottom of this page) to be the first to hear about events as they develop.

Longer term we are also planning:

Tricks of the Trade Workshops

Our Tricks of the Trade Workshops will give participants the opportunity to develop skills and learn how to do things for themselves as they are introduced to hand on practical processes behind a material or production technique. Hand-picked hosts will guide participants through. Experts in their field, they’ll also be ready to talk about some of the intricacies and potential pitfalls involved.

Study Days

Workshop Birmingham Study Days aim to give a broad overview of one particular process, material or theme within manufacturing. Small groups will spend a day visiting a number of different locations across the city – giving access to some of Birmingham’s most interesting manufacturers, material suppliers and workshops.
