Maker Speed Dater

  • The Whisky Bond 2 Dawson Road Glasgow, G4 9SL United Kingdom

Find and meet Glasgow-based metal workers, laser cutters, sackmakers, shellac suppliers, framers, mills, seamstresses, letterpress, water jet cutters, risograph printers, electronics, mould makers, workshops and slipcasters to name a few.

Make Works and The Whisky Bond are inviting 20 designers and 20 manufacturers to the same room, to have a couple beers, and then get speedy networking. This a bit like speed dating, but for finding new projects and contacts to work with locally (and most importantly, Make Work!)

Hastened conversations, buzzers, score cards— Maker Speed Dater is an opportunity to have a conversation, learn about what can be made in Glasgow and, who knows, maybe find that factory you’ve been looking for for months!

* Manufacturers are factories, workshops, material suppliers and makers, many of whom are listed on makeworks.co.uk  (20 available)

** Designers / Makers are designers, makers, artists, agencies, brands and local companies looking to find people that can make work locally. (20 available)

Tickets are available here and includes a free drink (or two)

Make Works is an independent design company that facilitates, celebrates and debates design, craftsmanship and manufacture
