Have You Heard About Fab Lab Airedale?​

For the second year, Fab Lab Airedale, based within Keighley College has created a herd of Bulls for Timothy Taylor’s annual Fund Raising Beef and Ale Dinner to be held in the dramatic and beautiful setting of York Minister. The Bulls are designed and by the Fab Lab Innovation Team and machined using their large computer controlled flatbed router and were painted in very lifelike style by artist Charlotte Hardaker.

The bulls will line the aisles at the event and will be auctioned off to raise money for the York Minster Fund. In 2015, the Bulls fabricated by the Fab Lab went for in excess £2000 at auction.

The College has been working with Timothy Taylors for several years, with Fab Lab providing machined products for the redevelopment of the Woolly Sheep Pub in Skipton and Taylors and the college delivering apprenticeships for the company.

The Fab Lab offers a range of commercial service including 3D printing, laser cutting and CNC machining of timber products, such as furniture. This is part of Keighley College’s diverse commercial offer which includes fabrication and welding, room hire and Team Building in our fabulous STAR Centre.
