Public Open Day

Join us for our extravaganza of Stuff! For the first time ever we will be spilling out onto Malet Place filling it with demo-stalls and making stations, meaning that we will be bigger and better than ever before. We are bringing back some old favourites along with some new discoveries.

For the first 400 people there will be a free 99' ice cream and all will be able to sample our special ice cream made using liquid nitrogen. Other confirmed activities include blacksmithing, rope making and 'the leg off' - where Barn the Spoon takes on Jim Steele in a 'Log to Leg' race (Jim has been known to complete this in 10 minutes). Game on!

There will also be a special Institute of Making stall selling an exciting array of materials. Please note that we will only be able to accept cash (there are several cashpoints close by).
