Makerversity Half Term Academy: Sculptural Twining at Farmopolis

Makerversity Half Term Academy: Sculptural Twining at Farmopolis

Join us for a textile-based workshop for 6-11 year olds with a parent on a jetty along the Thames river!

Address: 
Farmopolis
Greenwich Peninsula
SE10 0FL


I will be teaming up with Jewellery & Metalwork designer Alice McLean to run an inspiring hands-on workshop in learning elemental rope-making techniques to create sculptural plant-like forms. These long tendril-like vines can then be coiled and stitched to make vessels or create freestanding plant-like forms using wire. The final outcomes can either be made individually or collaboratively in parent/child pairs.

Makerversity’s residency at Farmopolis sees the jetty transformed into a mini university for kids aged 6-11 hosting an array of hands-on design and making workshops during Autumn Half Term (24th-28th October).

Makerversity creates environments for learning and making to inspire the next generation of creative and practical minds. Anyone who is in the business of making, or would like to be, is invited to be part of the community. From designers to hackers, engineers to technologists, coders to urban farmers, makers to inventors; Makerversity provides space, people and support to develop businesses and creative practice.

Tickets: £10
