From 3-7 July, the Lethaby Gallery hosted a programme of workshops, talks and events dedicated to the actions of making, sharing, learning and listening. Equipped with creative, digital and non-digital tools, the gallery encouraged a productive learning environment through community.
MAKE was born out of the Public Collaboration Lab and Local Encounters initiatives which supported Central Saint Martins staff and students to work with partners from our neighbouring communities. Embracing collaboration in the local area, the project promoted the values of the maker culture, which is focused on co-operation and knowledge-sharing.
The programme encouraged people to celebrate the power of making, discover new tools, materials and projects with guests and students and staff from across the College. The programme included open days for local community groups, tours, talks and workshops, including Women in Making which saw five women makers share their journeys into building a career in making.
