Part of a series of Show Me How – Hands on craft/making sessions running throughout June, July and August. These sessions are a great way to learn how to make things, meet other people and talk about the value of practical skills.

Each workshop will include a practical session led by a local maker, refreshments and the opportunity to discuss ideas and issues around making and co-working. 

The sessions are FREE to attend and unless stated otherwise, all materials will be provided. 

The full programme of sessions: 

Tuesday 23 June: Upcycling and re-using fabrics from your wardrobe, led by Sarah from Crafty Sew&So

Tuesday 30 June: Crochet and Craft Activism, led by Sarah Green

Tuesday 14 July – Functional Pottery led by Jo Keogh

Tuesday 28 July – Construct a birdbox with Peter Leadbeater

Tuesday 4 August – Basic Silversmithing with Hannah Smith

You can come to one, or more, or all of the sessions but capacity is limited so booking is essential. 

Show Me How is a project devised by the artist Ania Bas and delivered as part of Market Town, a programme of commissions and critical debate that sets out to reimagine the future of Loughborough’s high streets.
