About Fabrication Crafts

Leeds independent department store, creative workspace & fashion incubator

Fabrication Crafts is a Social Enterprise supporting micro crafts and design businesses in Leeds City Centre

Set up in 2008, with the aid of an Unltd Award, giving adhoc and permanent workspace for makers to use. We supply jewellery benches, leatherwork facilities and a fashion incubator space

We opened our first shop in October 2011, with a popup on Kirkgate Leeds. Quickly moving to the Merrion Centre for 2012. In October 2012 we opened a pop up in The Light. This gave more makers a place to sell, and we are still there. Our sellers are our shop staff, due to our remit to stop social isolation amongst crafts people

In November 2015 a fire and subsequent demolition halted our workspace and classes. We have now moved into a much larger building.  This has capacity for more makers and community groups to use our facilities

Fabrication is run by long term makers, rather than business advisors so you can be sure of mutual support
