The course runs from 10am to 4pm across 5 days. Travel expenses will be paid on programme and lunch is provided.




Makerversity is located in the basement of Somerset House in Central London. The course will take place in the Fusion Lab and across 5 different workshops – digital, engineering, 3D-printing, wood and textile.


What is Makerversity?

Makerversity is a space for professional makers, which combines co-working space with clean and messy workshop space, machines and tools. Really what we’re doing isn’t about the space though, it’s about people. Through our spaces we bring together people with all kinds of creative and technical expertise. Our members work together, play together and inspire each other.

One of our key aims at Makerversity is to support young people to find careers and nurture their skills in design and making. One of the ways we do this is through our partnership with the Prince’s Trust, who do great work to provide opportunities for young people in all sorts of career paths. Makerversity hosts the Design course for the London / South East region.
