Rediscover traditional crafts with a modern twist, learn a new skill and meet the makers behind some of our favourite products.
The Barbican Shop are hosting an exciting new series of summer workshops on the theme of making and craftsmanship.
Make! is a celebration of innovation and creativity in craft. We're working with the creme de la creme of contemporary makers; those with a modern take on conventional crafts such as weaving, casting and bookbinding, and those redefining it entirely with groundbreaking processes and exciting new materials.
Following our Makers programme, Make! seeks to further the Barbican's support of up and coming design talent, challenge perceptions of craft and inspire you to try something new.
Tickets are now on sale here.
