We are Makers HQ a Community Interest Company based in the HQ Building on Union Street. Our mission is to reignite fashion and textiles manufacturing in the city.
Our vision is to create jobs and provide work opportunities through the sampling studio. We work with high-end, new and emerging fashion designers from all over the UK bringing their new creations to life with our pattern cutting and sampling machinist skills. All profits from this are reinvested into the provision of our training and education programmes. These focus on engaging and up-skilling the local community to support progression into education and employment within the fashion and textiles sector.
Sampling studio services include: pattern drafting, single samples, manual and digital pattern drafting and grading, and short production runs.
Our training studio offers a level 1 & level 2 course in Industrial Garment Construction and Pattern Cutting. Find out more here.
