Making Up Your Street
Making Up Your Street was co-founded by myself and artist Laura Mabbutt in 2019. The ethos is to bring making to people within their communities, on the streets, to community places such as cinemas, markets and parks. And to encourage everyone to make no matter their age or ability. We provide all the materials and equipment so that anyone can come along to make what they want. Whether a present for someone, a new idea, to learn a new skill or experiment with materials. We can help with exploring the best way to make it and teach the skills needed to make it.
During lockdown we have been working on ways to get people making in their own homes. We will continue with this after lockdown with people who are isolated due to health problems, lack of transport or financial issues.
