The Academy of Makers is a series of small and medium-sized studios rented out to crafts makers, small businesses and the busy arts & craft shop, All Good Stuff. Following the traditional industry of the city and the building, many of our makers are metalsmiths, including a traditional metal spinner, jewellers and silversmiths. The All Good Stuff art and craft shop has a membership of many local craft-makers, selling beautiful and original handcraft gifts.

The Academy of Makers delivers work placements and work training opportunities to Freeman College students in the workshops and shop, which helps to build the students’ confidence and workplace skills. Throughout December, the Academy of Makers hosts Gold, Frankincense & Myrrh and an annual Christmas exhibition of leading metal craft in Butcher Works Gallery.
