We are continuing to welcome our new and returning students. Your safety is our first priority.

Get involved

Do you have a project or idea that you would like to see take place at MAKE? Maybe you want to put on a craft activity for the local area, run a workshop or find someone to collaborate with certain art and design skills from Central Saint Martins. If so, we’d love to hear your idea. Please get in touch at make@csm.arts.ac.uk.

If your project is the right fit for the space we can provide:

  • Dedicated project support from our MAKE team, including technical staff with experience of workshop facilitation, structured activities and using the various equipment and facilities available.
  • Access to our permanent equipment for MAKE, along with possible access to wider Central Saint Martin’s equipment on a loan basis.
  • Potential access to materials to bring your project to life, depending on whether it fits with our current stock. This will change over the course of the project so please speak to the team.
  • Links to our partners and stakeholders, including Camden Council and the organisations in the Knowledge Quarter.
