Micaella Pedros Workshop

7 March 2017

The new creative space, Custom Lane in Edinburgh was packed on Friday for the Maker Assembly Edinburgh event that brought together makers from around the world to have a conversation about cultures of making. We were delighted to collaborate with Maker Assembly to curate this event, that brought together speakers and participants from countries as far reaching as China, Turkey, South Africa, Spain and Nigeria.

The full-day event presented panel discussions on the themes of network building within maker communities, community activated making initiatives, and the role of making within design. Speakers included Fi Scott of Make Works, Hannah Fox of Derby Silk Mill, Engin Ayaz from our Maker Library in Istanbul and Jo Ashbridge from architecture charity AzuKo.  A series of hands-on workshops enabled participants to get making with Silo Studio , Jasleen Kaur, Helen Steer and Micaella Pedros.

The day concluded with a keynote in-conversation between curator, Daniel Charny  and writer and author Alice Rawsthorn who examined the role of making in the 21st Century.
