A new exhibition showcasing the Maker Library Network launches at Vitra Design Museum Gallery on 12 June. Curated by Daniel Charny, the exhibition integrates making, showing and reading into one creative space, celebrating the people, projects and collaborations the Network has nurtured over the last year.

During Art Basel week, 15-19 June, there will be a lively programme of drop-in workshops and skills demonstrations led by members of the Network including mask making, geodesic structures, himmeli mobile making and African loom work. Maker Librarians including Heath Nash from Cape Town, MAKlab from Glasgow, GRAS studio from Edinburgh and Machines Room from London will travel to Vitra to host the activities and share their skills with visitors.

Drop by to take part in the free workshops or join our online activities (more infomation to follow).
