Make Works Scotland

Make Works Scotland was our first region and the original home of Make Works. Originally initiated by Fionn Duffy-Scott in Scotland, Make Works has grown beyond Scotland's borders and is now emerging in many regions around the globe.  

In Scotland, we support local networks and communities to use Make Works. We raise awareness of the skills, knowledge and capability of local manufacturers, fabricators and makers to shift the perception of manufacturing, design, craft, making and repair in Scotland. We work alongside manufacturers and makers to share their work and support our local economy.
Since 2014 we have listed over 80 manufacturers in our region. We have enjoyed exploring textile factories, small independent makers and helping others to create their own regions and map their own local resources.

Hi, we are Helen and Kaye. We are the current custodians of Make Works Scotland. We are always looking for new partners to grow a collective of support around the platform. We’d love to hear from you!

Partners & Funders

Make Works Scotland has been possible due to the support we have beyond the core team. Previous partners and funders whose support has made Make Works Scotland possible are Creative Scotland, who supported a number of projects from 2013, such as the Make Works Tour, the first version of the site and our ongoing work in developing new business models; The Jerwood Foundation supporting Make Works in its early years; The William Grant Foundation who supported filming costs and the overheads with researching and growing our directory for local manufacturing in Scotland.
