The Forge

The Forge is a pop-up community maker space in Edinburgh. Based in renovated shipping containers, it’s a place where people can come together to build, design, fix and learn. In a time when many people feel increasingly confused by the pace of technological change, the Forge exists to help us re-engage with how the things around us are made.


Skills, tools and knowledge are made accessible to people from all walks of life, from students to retired engineers, from homeless people to professionals, from artists to DIY enthusiasts. By running weekly open drop-in sessions, maker weekends, woodworking courses and large group builds, our aim is to make tools and techniques accessible to those in the area we serve.
