CreateSpace events coming up

The CreateSpace launched in Summer 2019, as a place University of Dundee students and staff can go to get creative, no matter what their background or discipline of study.  The CreateSpace is located on the ground floor of the Main Library.

The CreateSpace is operated by the Library and Learning Centre, who provide equipment and resources to make different creative pursuits accessible to as many students as possible, removing cost and space barriers.  This allows students to try something different and build skills in areas broader than just what they are studying in class.  We have facilities such as 3D printers and digital embroidery machinery which might otherwise be difficult to access for many.

It is also recognised that being creative can help with wellbeing and mental health, so the space is also a place for students to relax and de-stress by picking up an activity which promotes mindfulness such as colouring in, jigsaw puzzling and sewing.

You can also come along to one of our CreateSpace Helper Drop-ins where a friendly member of the team will be on hand to answer your questions.  Drop-in times are:

Monday 2-5pm

Tuesday 2-5pm

Wednesday 2-5pm

Thursday 5-8pm

Friday 5-8pm

Saturday 2-5pm

Sunday 2-5pm

Please note that the CreateSpace can be used throughout library opening times, but equipment should not be used if you are unsure how to operate it.

We have clubs you can join and lots of events coming up.  

Please let us know if you would like to use the space to run your own event or if there is an event you would be interested in us organising for you!
