Workshop Birmingham aims to enable artists, designers, architects, makers and others to explore practical processes, develop skills, innovate and make work.
Through projects, proposals and collaborations we hope to unlock some of the incredible resources and expertise which exist in the city; create substantial new facilities which position Birmingham as a national centre for the production of art, design and craft; and connect and inspire a diverse community of individuals, companies and organisations able to support and contribute to this vision.
