At the centre of the Makerspace is a square (ish) space known as the 'Quad'. This has been set out as a multi-disciplinary making space so it can be flexibly moved around and serve several purposes. We have several large workshop tables for heavy duty work and stackable tables for quickly changing the layout.
In the past, we have had drama productions, musical recitals, drop-down days for primary pupils, speeches and exhibitions in the space. It is also used as a practical workshop day-to-day for Art & Design students and we often have exam groups sharing the space whilst working on coursework. We will continue to develop this space and are hoping to collaborate with PGCE and university students around how the space might become a site for exploration around the concept of a Makerspace. If you are interested in being part of a pilot programme, please get in touch.
