We’re launching ‘Make Something Month’ with a mini-festival to celebrate just how much we can make and do for ourselves. Join us at Totnes Civic Hall from midday-4pm for a festival of making, mending, repairing and sharing.
Chat with Mark Boyle, author of the Moneyless Manifesto about the joy of making, not buying, brew an ale with the crew from the New Lion Brewery (on their launch day!), spin a yarn with the Totnes Spinners, fashion a soundscape with Soundart Radio, throw a pot, make a bow (and arrow), pen a letter to your future self with Post Present Future, record your ‘objects of care’ with spreadthelove.org get political with bread, print & roses and their Guerilla Craft, bake an anarchist loaf, learn to knit, upcycle an old garment, weave a container from tetra pak, brew a muscle balm, show your bike some tlc with Dr Bike, get creative with the Totnes Arts Hub or make a decoration for a seasonal extravaganza.
The Festival of Making is brought to you in association with:
