The Festival of Stuff street festival is back on Saturday 8th July and is bursting with delectable making madness.

Come along to explore everything from tar 3D printing to plank guitars to a paddling pool filled with swelling dough. Get up close and personal with the life cycle of coffee from bean to bio-fuel, then roast and brew your own with a dollop of micro-foam for good measure. Meanwhile, in a 'M.I.Y.' spirit you can make your own DNA-strand pendant and create an etching with kitchen foil. Designers and makers Silo Studio are back with another improbable polystyrene making activity that involves ... alphabet soup?

To recover from all that excitement, sit down and do a quiet spot of textural embroidery and stitching with artist Richard McVetis or hunt down a re-invented stroopwafel. Inside the Makespace, explore Marvellous Medical Materials and delve into the ways in which materials impact on our health and wellbeing, or catch up with Hands of X and their beautiful and innovative bespoke prosthetics service.
All this and much more will be at our Saturday Extravaganza for exploring, creating and turning on its head. See you there!

The Festival of Stuff runs from 4-8 July and consists of four days of bookable masterclasses which lead up to a one-day, open-house, drop-in street festival with a wealth of curious things to get stuck into making and doing. 

The majority of the festival is wheelchair accessible, if you have any access questions email events@instituteofmaking.org.uk.
