The first National Festival of Making is taking place on 6 and 7 May in Blackburn.

The Festival of Making seeks to celebrate the diversity in the range, scale, and skills of UK-based making, and will provide an opportunity for residents and visitors to see, make, and do. The Festival will be taking over the streets of Blackburn with music, markets, street food, art, performance, tours, talks, and, above all, an eclectic mix of making experiences for everyone.

If you are interested in getting involved, come along to The Mall, Blackburn, where visitors of any age can enjoy a fun range of drop-in workshop activities for free, from coding LEDs to sensing the environment. After you have given making a go at the Festival, you can try out more of our free online resources for yourself.
