Micromakers is a program for our younger citizens who crave the freedom to make that seems to be disappearing from our schools and traditional clubs.
We have a wealth of creative experience, resource and skill in our village, Micromakers aims to connect aspirational young makers with this pool of knowledge to help pass on the skills that can nurture our next generation makers.
To date participants have made what interests them with the support of an adult team, you can see some of the results by scrolling below.
Moving forward into 2020 we have a programme of subsidised workshops designed for small groups of dedicated young makers to introduce them to a range of techniques. We hope these introductory sessions will inspire more makers to develop ideas that build their skills and confidence.
There are selling opportunities for those who want to try their hand at running a stall during a microtalks+ session, this gentle start to a maker business we hope will spark entrepreneurial spirits and lead to exciting life opportunities as makers.
Our first workshop will be on the 1st Feb and making the most of the new Riso facility provided by the Barony. Further workshops in ceramics, resin casting, sewing, bead making, textile painting and costume design will follow so watch this space.
Workshops will be charged at £5+ a donation (if you can)
All materials will be provided, ongoing support to develop projects that result from the workshops is free.
This project is kindly supported by Microtalks donations and village sponsors.
