Call out for makers for ‘Assemble: Derby’s Making Festival’

This week Derby Museums have launched our call out for makers for ‘Assemble: Derby’s Making Festival’ returning to the Museum of Making on Saturday 22nd October.

Produced by Derby Museums, Assemble is a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, which aims to celebrate making in all its shapes and forms. Bringing together artists and makers from varied disciplines to share their passion and skills with the public and to encourage others to have a go at making themselves.

Last year’s event saw audiences of over 900 in attendance and featured more than 50 makers on-site, with demonstrations in everything from ceramics and embroidery to laser-cutting, weaving, jewellery-making, metalwork, robotics and automata, visitors could also try workshops in clay-modelling, knitting, coding, origami and letterpress printing to name but a few.

We’re expecting this year’s event to be even bigger and busier than the last and applications to share your work as part of the day are now open.

You can find more information and how to apply for Assemble at the link below, if you could share this through your network, we’d really appreciate it.
