The Makery Stag's Head Gallery

Posted on July 25, 2014 by The Makery | 0 comments

We've been so impressed with all the stag's heads our lovely Makery friends have made from our book 'Makery' and with our Stag's Head Make Away kit we wanted to show them off in all their glory.  

From top left to right clockwise: Made by the very clever Sally Hutton; Jemima Kenchington; Louise Dunmore; Clairyland; and both at bottom by Hayley Breen. 

Have you made a Stag's Head from our book or from one of our Make Away Kits? Then please share your handiwork on our Facebook page and we will add them to the gallery.

Or are you in the middle of making a friendly stag or perhaps a unicorn or other creature, then please feel free to use the comments below to offer advice, ask questions and share ideas!

When you post let us know a bit about them, why you made them, who for and if they have a name.

(P.S this is only the first selection so if you have sent it to us then just post again so we can share again x)

Hire The Makery for your team building away day, meeting or event

Posted on July 22, 2014 by The Makery | 0 comments

The Makery is renowned in Bath for it’s creative space, hosting an array of “wonderful workshops”, “fantastic hen do’s” and “insanely cool” children’s parties.

……..now we’re adding another string to our bow.

Having moved into our beautiful expanded premises in Union Passage, with it’s multitude of sunny spaces, The Makery is delighted to announce that we have space enough to share and rooms to hire:

- Come and utilise our workshop for your corporate away day.

- Host your product launch in our elegant drawing room.

- Treat your colleagues to an evening of making. 

Come one and all and hire our space!

We reckon we’re the ultimate inspirational venue for any event, whether it’s a creative company fun day, a team building afternoon, a meeting of great minds or a launch party. Perhaps it’s just the space you’re after, or maybe you would like to add an exciting activity.

Take a tour of our majestic rooms



If you’ve got time on your team building day, or you want to throw a quirky making session at the end of your business meeting, then we’ve got a few ideas for you. 

Printmaking: 3hrs, £20 per head

With ample guidance we’ll lead you through designing and making your own lino print. Everyone can print their own pieces and and then we’ll bring your designs together to make up a large collaborative canvas!

It’ll be the talk of the office! 

Sock Monkeys: 2hrs £17 per head

Depending on the size of the gathering, we can divide into smaller groups and each group can designs and make with help from the Makery staff a wonderful little sock creature! These little dudes can be customised with buttons, ribbons, waistcoats, moustaches, if you can imagine it, lets make it! The customisation can fit in with the teams dynamic, perhaps it’s a finance sock monkey, or a cookery monkey. There is so much scope for creativity. 

T-shirt Design: 1hr 30mins £15 per head

With all the creative facilities on hand, we can design and stitch a fabulous set of personalised T-shirts. 

If you choose to have an activity it doesn’t have to be craft, we have friends all over Bath who are happy to come and spend a couple of hours with you and your colleagues.

Perhaps a yoga session to start the day, some fun acting activities to accompany lunch, or a wine tasting hour to finish your day and go out on a buzz!

A great location

Down our rainbow coloured stairs and out the door and you’re in the centre of Bath. A vibrant centre full of loads of places to eat, explore and admire.


For more information on booking one of our spaces or to answer any of your questions please drop emily@themakery.co.uk an email or give us a call on 01225 581888.
