Watch | Inspiring innovation and collaborative creativity

“The Library Makerspace is a fully accessible innovation space designed to enable collaborative creativity by all staff and students.”

On the eve of two special showcase events hosted by the University as part of Leeds Digital Festival 2023, Dr Andy Holland, Library Makerspace Specialist, and Em Towler, Digital Learning Advisor with the Library Service, join forces in a new video outlining how this state-of-the-art creative hub will help expand the digital and technological skills of staff and students at Leeds.

Located in the Edward Boyle Library, the Makerspace is packed with all the latest kit needed to help turn your innovative ideas into reality.

From craft cutting machines and 3D printers to podcasting, photography and media equipment, the Library Makerspace is the go-to centre for hands-on learning, where you can experiment and collaborate with course-mates and co-workers using a range of new and emerging technologies.

Open 11am to 4pm Monday to Thursday, there’s no need to book – just turn up and take part.

Hear how you can also take this amazing equipment for a test drive during the Library Makerspace showcase on 28 September. This event runs parallel with a showcase by HELIX – the University’s innovative digital learning space.

You’ll have plenty of time to visit both venues on the day to gain a sense of the variety of technologies on offer to staff and students, as well as the range of events and collaborations we’re planning with partners from the wider Leeds community.
