Become aCody Maker

Do you love to make things and craft?

Maybe you are bored sitting at home and want to try new projects in a creative space?

Join me Abi, your resident Maker in the Gallery and dive into crafting things that stimulate your mind and gladden your heart. With minimal supplies, using what we have, we can create amazing artifacts with bits and pieces of this and that.

Cody Makers supports Cody Dock by decorating, upcycling and providing fun eye candy for the creative community that call the Dock their home. There are two sessions you can join – Wednesday Volunteer Maker Days and Sunday Workshops.

As a Cody Maker you get to

  • Use your hands
  • Problem solve
  • Help others
  • Develop your creativity

All in a natural playground next to the River Lea!

Wednesday Maker Days

10am – 1pm

Wednesdays offer a volunteering opportunity to join Cody Makers and work on current projects – this might be designing and painting signage, refurbishing the volunteer hut, building bird boxes and bug hotels.

Book now!

Or email [email protected] for more information.

Sunday Workshops

11am – 3pm

Sundays are crafty meetups with tea and chat! Come and learn a new skill like knitting and weaving or make wooden birds from offcuts and rusty nails. Maybe you’ve always wanted to junk journal or try painting?

These stand alone Sunday workshops are a chance to develop the artist in you and meet like minded crafters. See what’s on offer on the Cody Maker’s calendar.

Workshop fee: £6 to cover costs.

Spaces are limited so please book your workshop online:
