Derby Makers

Welcome to Derby Makers.

We're a group of people who like making stuff, whether it be electronics, computer programs, knitting & fabrics, jam & pickles or anything else.

We meet every Thursday evening between 6 & 9pm in the Derby Silk Mill, arguably the site of the world's first factory and an awesome place to have a makerspace!  

If you want to come and find out what we're doing please drop in to see us.  

You can also find out a bit more on our website at  This is a new site for us but will grow as we do.

We hope to see you along!
