• Welcome to Build Brighton

Welcome

We are an enthusiastic group of makers working on individual projects, from toys to wind turbines, and collaborating on bigger builds such as robots and a filament extruder for 3D printers. So if you like making things come along on Thursday evenings and find out how to get involved. You don’t have to have particular skills. Some members bring LEGO, knitting and wacky inventions, so (almost) anything goes. We’re in the Rodhus building, which has a bright mural on Hollingdean Road, but our entrance is through the metal shutters round the back, on Freehold Terrace.
