Come and have a look around on one of our monthly open days. Our team will be in hand to answer questions and show you around. Join our mailing list to be kept up-to-date with our adventures, activities, events, exhibitions and material extravaganzas.


Can I come and have a look?

Yes! We can't accommodate drop in visits or tours but we have a range of public events like Materials Library discovery sessions, making workshops, evening talks and public open days. For more details please visit the events page and join our mailing list.

Can I bring a school /college group?

Groups of under 10 people are very welcome at our open days, but as space is limited, please encourage students to come along independently or with their families.

Can I talk to you about this material /my project?

Come to one of our open days or Materials Library discovery sessions where you can ask questions, handle materials and learn more. We also have a lot of our collection online in a searchable database!

Can I rent /book the space?

The Institute of Making is not bookable, our priority is day to day member access and planned public events. If you have great idea you’d like to put to our events committee, contact us.

Can you supervise my PhD?
