Discover new skills
Fancy expanding your crafting skill set? The Barbican Shop in London is running a series of talks, installations and practical workshops on the theme of making and craftsmanship, called Make!, from 17 March to 3 June 2018. If you’re quick, you might catch the stitching workshop by the Stitch School running at the end of March. Don’t worry if you don’t, as there are plenty more crafty ideas to try out until June, including ring carving workshops with east London collective The Workbench, bookbinding workshops with experts from the London Centre for Book Arts and weaving workshops and an installation from tapestry weaver Christabel Balfour.
