Urban Workbench

Urban Workbench is a We Make Places project which invites local people to develop skills in basic joinery, DIY, furniture making, upcycling and construction, whilst growing their capacity to contribute to positive social activism.

  • Speakeasy: A place to leave your thoughts about making.
  • Paid workshop: £5 build and decorate your own bird box from recycled pallet wood.
  • Free Workshop: Play some microgames and make your own.
  • We will be showcasing our range of affordable flat pack furniture and taking bookings for our learning programme.

Our learning delivery and live projects offer a ‘holistic’ approach to skills development, with a primary focus on well-being and self-confidence of individuals and their communities.

We help communities of interest and locality to develop sustainable projects. These projects are about reconsidering ignored, underused or condemned places in a new light, allowing them to rise again becoming healthy, happy, active and loved. As Designers, Communicators and Makers we make long-term change happen with speed and passion.

We Make Places is a Community Interest Company, based in Liverpool, UK which is writing, living and delivering a manifesto for change across the built environment.
