Starting a maker-based business is hard. Growing it into a successful, viable venture is harder still. In 2016 MakerSpace is supporting 3 designer-makers in the first few years of building their creative practice. Congratulations to our inaugural winners Liam Mugavin, Leonie Simpson & Kenny Yong Soo Son.

Our agenda is to build a culture of innovation and excellence in Australian design, whilst strengthening the local community by bringing people together.


The MakeIt Award is the first step.
We are looking for 4 exceptional people with young businesses. People with drive, ambition and vision; and a clear strategy for how their business would benefit from access to our facilities. Winners receive 12 months access and business mentoring. Next round applications open March 2017.
