Sheffield City of Makers

Sheffield has an international reputation as a city of makers and is renowned for its manufacturing excellence and innovation. 

Sheffield City of Makers celebrates our strength in everything from advanced manufacturing, specialist steels, forged products, cutting tools, flanges, bearings and blades to award-winning theatre, international art and design, ground-breaking research and world class talent.

The concept grew from the Year of Making Sheffield 2016, led by Sheffield Culture Consortium, with partners the University of Sheffield, Sheffield Hallam University, Chamber of Commerce, Made in Sheffield, The Company of Cutlers in Hallamshire and Sheffield City Council. An advisory group links industry sectors with members from a range of organisations including both universities, RIBA, Sheffield City Council, Cutlers Company, Assay Office, Made in Sheffield and the wider business community.
