Make Works are creating open access to local manufacturing

patrons

Hello! We are Make Works, and we are factory finders helping you discover incredible makers, manufacturers, material suppliers, workshops and make your own things locally.

Since 2012 we have been documenting different fabrication processes and highlighting local manufacturers that are often hidden away on industrial estates and difficult to find online.

Helping people make locally is important to us, as we believe the future of manufacturing is in having more sustainable, environmentally friendly choices for designers / artists / creatives.

Our wonderful Patron's help to keep us out there discovering new factories, exploring ideas about sustainable making and keeping the site free for everyone to use. Thank you! 

If you have found a manufacturer through Make Works, got work as a result of being listed on the site, have simply loved watching the films or following our work then this is a chance to get involved and help the project thrive long into the future.

Find local manufacturers and more about Make Works here.
