As FabLab Coventry approaches it’s 5th Birthday, we thought what better way to celebrate the anniversary than with the launch of our Eco Furniture Factory!
Whilst we are unable to celebrate as we had originally planned due to the delay in COVID restrictions lifting, we have put measures in place to ensure the local community can celebrate with us in a COVID safe way.
Based at Fargo Village, our Eco Furniture Factory is aimed at supporting the local community to grow; learn new skills and gain qualifications in practical activities, such as woodworking and DIY; or start up an Eco-enterprise in a friendly, welcoming environment.
Join us on 3rd July to celebrate our birthday and officially launch our new facility; finding out what services we offer, bring friends or family, and take part in our FREE taster sessions and activities to learn new digital skills and put your creativity into actions or get inspired by our friendly staff. It will be a great chance to socialise and meet new people.
Eco Furniture Factory Launch and Community Day:
3rd of July 2021
Far Gosford St
Spend the day in creative way and try our FREE taster sessions:
Repair Café running between 10am-2pm
Bring in any small items in need of repair (small toys, small items of furniture, clothing) and get support from our friendly team of technical skills instructors to bring your item back to life.
Jewellery Making: 10am-11am
Use a laser cutter to digitally cut pendants and manually finish off your own design.
Woodworking: 11:30am- 12:30pm
Use a band saw to create different shapes for personalisation.
Upcycling Textiles: 1pm-2pm
Utilise old or scrap materials to create a bespoke tote bag using a mixture of hand and machine sewing techniques.
As part of the day, Hope for the Community’s “Gratitude Wall” will also be joining us in our celebrations, for you to share your messages of gratitude, hope or joy; the first time the Gratitude Wall returns to us for an event since it’s original build in the small woodworking area at FabLab Coventry in 2017.

Following the government guidelines, we have put measures in place to protect our team and visitors and provide you great and safe experience.
