Come and Join our Exciting Community The Making Rooms is not just a makerspace, it is the hub of Blackburn with Darwen’s growing community of entrepreneurs, craft businesses, artists and startups.

Situated right in the heart of Blackburn town centre, The Making Rooms hosts a digital fabrication facility where anyone can design, make, experiment, develop, learn and play with a wide range of equipment from high-tech digital manufacturing such as 3D printing to traditional craft such as pottery.

We don’t do all this alone though, we surround ourselves with an ecosystem of support for individuals and small businesses including finance, product development, marketing, business development, and innovation to name but a few.
