RemakerSpace is committed to drive fundamental changes to the way we design, make, consume, and dispose of goods to extend product life cycles.

RemakerSpace is a Cardiff Business School and PARC Institute not-for-profit initiative dedicated to enabling the circular economy and ending planned obsolescence by extending the lifecycle of products. We work with community groups, businesses, and education providers to drive the circular economy in Wales and beyond.

Located at Cardiff University’s Social Science Research Park, RemakerSpace is a 1 million pound facility hosting  £600,000 of equipment that has been funded by the Welsh Government’s Circular Economy Fund and considerable contribution by Cardiff Business School.

We can help communities fix a broken appliance with our electrical repair kits, extend the life of garments with our industrial sewing machines, use virtual reality systems to visualise repair operations, or even print spare parts with our advanced range of 3D printers.

We work with schools, colleges, and universities to provide real-world exposure to the circular economy in practice.

Based on our world-leading research in remanufacturing supply chains, we are well-placed to provide advice and guidance to firms large and small about how best to embrace remanufacturing within their operations, both to achieve environmental and economic benefits.

RemakerSpace offers a unique combination of equipment including conventional tools in our purpose-built workshop to state of the art 3D printers and a visualisation suite.

Comprised of a multidisciplinary team RemakerSpace offers a full range of knowledge and skills for the circular economy. Learn more about the RemakerSpace team.

We provide a source of expertise that is academically rigorous yet grounded in practical applications.

RemakerSpace provides a dynamic environment where community groups can engage in hands-on learning, actively create, experiment, and tinker.

RemakerSpace offers learners a chance to actively participate in activities related to remanufacturing, repair, and sustainability.
