Colonnade House - Creative Hub


Successful Tech Sessions at Colonnade House

In January 2020, we coordinated the Space to Make project which, tested the idea of a makerspace in Worthing . We worked with Tech Resort, a Community Interest Company specialising in promoting and sharing digital skills, and Community Works, which support voluntary organisations in the area, to trial makerspace activity in the space. We purchased 3D printers and a laser cutter and worked with residents, artists and designers to test what they could do with the technology.

Since then, we loaned our 3D printer to community groups to print face visors for health care workers during the pandemic and we also worked with Colonnade House tenant, Chris Andrews, to laser cut components for a model railway.

When government restrictions had eased, we held our Space to Make Sessions in May 2021, during our covid secure bookable sessions participants made all sorts of things and learnt about how they might want to integrate the tech in their own creative art practice or business.
