Join us at Pickford’s House this Saturday to explore how mushrooms help us make breakthroughs as part of Being Human Festival 2022, the UK’s national festival of the humanities. Discuss ideas of home, resilience and community through arts and crafts activities. This event is free and open to all.

Want to learn a new skill? Check out the new courses coming up at the Museum of Making. Learn how to make your own organic cotton blouse with local textile artist Abigail Wastie, and make your own cookie cutters with An Intro to Tinsmithing led by Workshop Technicians Arthur and Andy.
