Paper Crafts MakerSpace



This MakerSpace is for people who love to make things from paper. By working with other people who are into paper art and craft, you can gain inspiration, learn new techniques and share ideas.  

If you don’t have space at home or your own studio, this is a great way of working on your project in the company of others. If you are new to paper-crafting, you are very welcome - the group are happy to help get you started!

Regular attendance is not required - drop in anytime during the scheduled hours.

MakerSpaces are creative, social spaces, coordinated by volunteers, which provide opportunities for people to share, learn and connect. There are various MakerSpaces at different locations. Find out more about MakerSpaces.

Participants have the opportunity to exhibit in our end of year diversARTy exhibition at Eltham Library Gallery to celebrate their achievements with friends and family.

This activity is open to people aged 18 years and over. 
You can enrol in a MakerSpace at any time.
The MakerSpace fee shown below will be the half-price fee from 1 July.


This MakerSpace is held at our Eltham centre - 739 Main Road.
