Lambeth’s artisans show what they’re made of

Making Uncovered is a festival showcasing Lambeth’s makers, artists and designers. This year’s event will have demonstrations of over a dozen disciplines, from woodwork to illustration to ceramics to calligraphy to jewellery and much more.

You can watch makers create beautiful objects – or try a new skill yourself in a variety of engaging workshops. You can upholster a chair, make your own hair conditioner, learn to dye eggs, try out illustration, crochet a bracelet, make a bowl… and take it home with you.

If you’re considering a career change that would allow you to earn a living from your creativity, you can go to business support sessions about social media and how to create beautiful market stalls.

In the evening there will be talks about making, followed by a party with live music!

Making Uncovered is organised by volunteers from Makerhood, a collective of Lambeth’s makers, artists and designers that promotes local creative talent. The event kicks off the first ever Brixton Design Week and is held at Six Brixton, a new community venue at 6 Somerleyton Road and part of Future Brixton’s Somerleyton Road project.
