Our Meet the Maker series of events are an opportunity for professionals and practitioners across the Dorset region to develop new capabilities within a creative discipline.

Each event is hosted by a Dorset business with an introductory talk on their practice, followed by a workshop activity. Previous events have covered woodwork, 3D printing for prototyping, ceramics, prosthetic design for media and performance and letterpress printing. Take a look at the gallery of our previous activities.

These events are free for Dorset industry and are supported under our European Regional Development Fund programme.
