Location: Institute of Making, Malet Place, UCL, London, WC1E 7JE Map

Bring your A-game and join the Institute of Making for its Festival of Stuff finale, as it hosts a one-day, large-scale, drop-in and totally free festival to celebrate materials and making through the medium of crazy golf.

London's most engaging lab is fulfilling a life-long ambition to put together its very own golf course inspired by the way materials behave, with imaginative and surprising golf holes in true Institute of Making style. Teams of visitors will play holes that showcase the terrific properties of lasers, wood, velcro, mirrors, liquids, invisible balls, pipes, synthetic fur, books, bathtubs, microscopes and much more. The day will include hands-on activities including spherification and pencil making, as well as exploring the nature of sand, grass, optics and angles, with ball-themed refreshments at a terrific 19th hole.

Our summery festival will once again fill the street outside the Institute of Making, filling it with crazy materials golf madness, mind-boggling demonstrations, exciting making stations and surprising food stalls. As always, the Institute of Making will be open to the public on the day, giving visitors the opportunity to have a glimpse of the Materials Library and its wondrous collection of stuff. All this and much more will be at our Saturday Extravaganza for exploring, creating and turning on its head.

Free, open to all, drop in from 1pm, gates close at 5pm.
