A nationwide programme of craft and innovation workshops, 28-29 October 2016

Make:Shift:Do is an opportunity for everyone in the UK to meet the next generation of makers and to try their hand at a new craft, from 3D printing to laser-cutting or CNC milling From open-source making and the rise of 3D printers, the UK is witnessing a boom in new making, fuelled by accessible new design technology and the spread of social media.

Make:Shift:Do events will be taking place this October, with the main festival of events happening on 28 and 29 October 2016. 

Make:Shift:Do is organised by the Crafts Council in partnership with founding partners the V&A and Institute of Making at UCL. In 2016 the programme is also supported by partners the Centre for Fine Print Research at UWE, Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, Fab Lab Nerve Centre and Ultimaker GB. 

Crafts Council is also working in Partnership with the Royal Academy to deliver Make:Shift:Draw an experimental drawing extravaganza as part of the RA Family Studios.
