Whether you’re an individual hoping to learn a new skill, a business looking for somewhere to hold a meeting, or a person who’s found themselves between jobs, Create has something for you.

We are a non-profit organisation in the centre of Oldham, with a range of available opportunities. We have a co-working space available to hire, perfect for getting your team together for meetings and presentations. Three different packages can be chosen from, with facilities including a large projector, a PA system, a flip chart and refreshments.

A makerspace, or in layman’s terms, a place where like-minded people can gather to work on projects, often revolving around computing and technology, is also available to use. Equipment includes 3D printers, 3D scanners, a laser cutter, an electronics lab, wood-working tools and soldering stations. This space is perfect for creative individuals with ideas they want to make into a reality, or individuals who want to increase their skill set and try something new. Our members come from a wide range of backgrounds, and have a wealth of knowledge they will readily share.

On top of these great opportunities, you can also benefit from a range of groups and events. Some operate weekly, whereas others may be fortnightly or even monthly. You could try your hand at the monthly Writer’s Group; writing creative pieces to share with others, or you could bring the whole family and get messy; painting pots and other artsy activities at Create’s Happy Hobbies. We don’t take ourselves too seriously, and we stress the importance of knowing; it’s never too late to learn something new! Take a look on our website for an exhaustive list of all our groups and events, and follow us on our Facebook account to get live updates and extra information.

Create is open Monday to Friday, from 9am, with the addition of certain Saturdays, depending on events. We are available to all members of the public, with Thursday night being free to give individuals a taster of what being a Createer would be like. Membership costs just £10 a month, and once you have this, you can come join us whenever.
