Access Space is an arts and education charity with a maker space called Refab Space (which we opened in 2012). We're based in central Sheffield, close to the rail and bus stations.
People interested in art, design, computers, recycling, music, electronics, photography and more, meet like-minded people, share and develop skills and work on creative, enterprising and technical projects. The makers for this challenge are John Moseley, Toni Buckby, Gareth Coleman, Jake Harries and Martyn Eggelton.

I am an artist working with textiles and interactive media. I run workshops on digital fabrication at Access Space (Sheffield) and spend most of my time attempting to get impractical ideas to function.

The wild music hairdryer really sings as you dry your hair! It was brought to life by the people at Access space in Sheffield.

They said, 'We thought this was a great idea! With wings and feet too, a musical hair dyer just had to be disco! We like to imagine the Bee Gees drying their big hair in 1976 with this before heading out for a night of crazy dancing'.
