Quarantine is over, and makerspaces in Birmingham are back. Find all the tools you need to get work done and get your creative juices pumping at these amazing shared spaces.
MAKEbhm envisions a creative community as one made up of people who believe in good design, original ideas and collaboration. That is something they have created in this space, where members have the chance to fulfill their creative visions.
They offer a dedicated studio or shared studio for members. Dedicated studios are great for creators who already have their own tools and just require a set apart space for their work. Shared studios are for those who want regular access to making and equipment but aren’t ready for their own studio.
