Dunblane Digital Makerspace is an initiative of Creative Dunblane, set up to give members of the community of Dunblane, Ashfield and Braco access to and training on a range of digital equipment – 3D printers, a laser cutter and a CNC milling machine. The project is run by 30 local volunteers and is based in Dunblane’s Burgh Chambers – part of the town’s Cathedral quarter.

In order to involve as many local people as possible, the Makerspace team holds open days, drop-in sessions for the uninitiated, drop-in and regular training sessions for members, and regular member updates on developments. We are working directly with local high school students both in the High School and in the makerspace and have plans to work with local primary schools.

Makerspace members have undertaken a range of commissions for local groups including signage for the Laigh Hills orchards and at the Fourways roundabout, medallions for the Dunblane road race, Xmas baubles for Santa at the Extravaganza and animal signage for the Ecofest.
