Join Makerversity in exploring the ways in which digital making innovates upon, experiments with and helps preserve contemporary craft. Through demonstrations, workshops and tours, discover how their members are recoding the relationship between the digital and the handmade.

Makerversity powers a community of emerging maker businesses, shaping the future through pioneering creative experiments and collaborations. This year’s showcase explores intersections between traditional craft techniques and emerging digital technologies. How can we recode the relationships between the digital and the handmade, as a means of expanding upon whilst preserving contemporary craft?

Member-led demonstrations include discovering Heleen Sintobin’s vegetable-tanned leather pieces using digital processes, participating in interactive performances of Jacob Boast’s experimental wire-forming practice, discussing the potential of automated processes in textile design with Kniterate and exploring wearable tech with Adrienne Jacobson.

Encounter Common Works’ conceptual experiments in merging the digital and the handmade, as well as Abbie Adams’ use of 3D-printing to shift our perception of traditional craft.  

Following their courtyard installation during London Design Biennale 2018, Studio INI will tour guests around their Vault, showing how you can merge glassblowing with automation.

Venue is wheelchair accessible.
