About

Make is a community not-for-profit project for people in Horsham, West Sussex. Launched in February 2012 it offers creative craft workshops on the first Monday evening of each month. The first two workshops have proved to be popular, both being fully booked, so we have now introduced a Craft Café night on the third Monday evening of each month and most recently on one wednesday night a month, ‘Craft at The Crown’.

The workshops are an opportunity for people to get together, chat, drink, eat and to learn something new from experienced craft tutors. We feel that we should share our skills just like previous generations have done and have gathered a network of experts in their field who feel the same.

We think that everyone has a creative side and we would like everyone to get a chance to try some different crafts and not let money be an obstacle. We hope that these evenings will build connections and a sense of community through crafting. The project will focus on ideas of recycling, re-using and upcycling as much as possible.

Upcoming Projects –

As part of our future plans we hope to be involved in

–         other large community events in Horsham,

–         offering some summer workshops in the park,

–         organising a Christmas Crafting Club,

–         some creative family workshops on Sunday afternoons

…..so watch this space.

    Hooray! I’m so happy, i have been wanting a crafting community meet in Horsham for ages and have been thinking of setting up my own if i didnt find one. I am so looking forward to coming to some courses and the evening cafe. All the best for Make.

    I LOVE it! Unfortunately I am not local to you, but this is just what I have been thinking of trying to start up in my local town. Very inspiring-thankyou!

      Thank you for you lovely words Jen. I personally think that every town should have a Make, but I’m a bit biased! Do get in contact if you’d like any help with any tips and advice x
