Flowering Elbow Workshop Membership

As you’ll know if you’ve been following the blog, we’ve been setting up a new Mid-Wales workshop, in which all kinds of exciting making/ learning/ inventing type jazz will occur. It’s great, awesome, magical, inspiring, and a fantastic resource for makers, hackers, artists, crafters and everyone else who fancies having a go…

We have big stuff, or at least beyond the kinds of things you can get into your average shed/ basement/ bedroom workshop. Milling, drilling, sawing, welding, plaining, and turning – we want to be able to do it all, and bring those creations to life. Of course we are already planning the 3d printer and cnc machine builds and other exciting custom tools that will come later. All this gives us, that is the Flowering Elbow collective – which could include you – the ability to re-work and upcycle the materials that get thrown away all the time. Metal, timber, plastics, electronics, fabrics: the only limit is our imagination….

And this is a place that sparks the imagination, it’s somewhere to check out the growing ‘inspiration library’, meet other like minded people, work on your pet project, or formulate your next fantastical creation.
