British Council & Elegant Embellishments


The British Council is the UK’s international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities.
It works in more than 100 countries with thousands of professionals and policy makers and millions of young people every year by teaching English, sharing the arts and delivering education and society programmes. As a contribution to Make City, the British Council sponsored Germany's first Maker Library that will be hostet by Elegant Embellishments. Elegant Embellishments are architects and design-manufacturers who reconcile technology and the environment through innovative building products.


Maker Libraries are creative spaces that combine reading, showing, and making. They are defined by three key elements: a library, a make-space and a gallery. Each Maker Library connects with the network over an online platform.
Elegant Embellishments Ltd will function as Germany’s first Maker Library in the international Maker Library Network. Its team will operate from their architectural studio, create a community centre and reading-room, host discussions and workshops. They will connect with the other Maker Libraries in the Network over the online platform which also provides access to open source designs and mentoring resources.
