    Connecting a Community of Creatives The Makers’ Space, Longbarn Village, Alcester Heath, B49 5JJ

    The Makers’ Space is a new vibrant craft community showcasing the best of local artists and makers. We are passionate about championing creativity, craft and community. Based at Longbarn Village, a beautiful listed Tudor building oozing with character, the light and airy spaces lend themselves perfectly to all forms of creativity.

     

     

    From photography and videography, to art and craft studios, sewing classes, retreats, events, retail, and even a dog friendly cafe, there is so much on offer that will appeal to all. If you are looking to learn a new skill, practise some mindful crafts, indulge in our cafe and retail spaces, or simply be part of a creative community of makers, there is something at The Makers’ Space for everyone.

    In a world full of consumption, there is something about the act of creativity; making something with purpose and passion, that allows us all to focus, to be mindful, and to connect to a deeper part of ourselves. The Makers’ Space allows people to explore their innate creativity, have an opportunity to make, play, learn and connect.

    Nipped into @thersc today. This is so impressive… inspired by Shakespeare’s ‘Romeo & Juliet’ 🎭 

If you want to see it for yourself, enter the building through the side entrance on the right across from The Arden, it’s upstairs.
