COVID-19 Update

Due to the Government’s new COVID-19 guidelines we have had to suspend the Cody Makers workshops for the foreseeable future. We will update this page as soon as they can resume.

Check out one of our fantastic online makes!

Reed Warbler – It weaves its nest as a sling between two or three reed stems.

Oxeye Daisy – Its large blooms are so bright that they appear to ‘glow’ in the evening.

Emperor Dragonfly – It catches its prey in mid-air and may eat it on the wing.


This is a shout out to all the makers out there, the crafters who no longer craft but wish they could, the painters and woodworkers who were scolded at school for colouring outside the lines and making wonky objects.

It’s time to heal your old school art wounds and reconnect with your making mojo.

Cody Makers is launching this month and will run weekly craft workshops where you can share ideas, learn new skills and make things with your own hands.

All this in the heart of the creative community that is Cody Dock.

June is a month of emerging warmth and bold blooms after the tentative sprouting through April and May. Our theme for June is ENERGISE!

Over the past few months as we’ve battled Lockdowns and found ourselves confined to our homes I have delivered Cody Maker workshops online. Well now it is time to inhabit the Maker Space at Cody Dock and get crafting together!

Located at the entrance to Cody Dock, the Cody Makers home in the Gallery is airy and bright with lots of room to build things, sew, draw, paint and relax – it’s next to the café and a short walk to the river!

What Are We Making In June?

Over the next four weeks we will be exploring wood and wire creatures and junk flowers. We will repurpose / upcycle plastic bottles and cartons and gather offcuts of wood from the workshop to craft into our makes.

No previous experience of crafting is necessary, I’ll guide you or happily leave you to play if you are more confident. It’s a great way to connect with others, get in touch with your inner maker and spend time away from screens, scrolling and the virtual lives we’ve had to live recently.

What are we looking forward to next month?

The theme for July is RELAXATION as we explore altered books, paper craft and the summer sun.
