Try It! - Create and Repair Club is a 10-week course. We recommend that you attend all 10 sessions. However, if you have to miss one, that’s okay - you don’t need to book for all sessions in advance.

No prior experience is required to join the course. We welcome you and your friends to have some fun and Try It! this autumn.

Guideline Age Range: 16+

WITH FABLAB

Make, repair and upcycle all sorts of things!

Does your wheelchair need reupholstering or do you want to build an accessible herb garden from reclaimed pallet-wood? Do you want to catch the craze for vinyl window and wall décor? Do you want to add electronics to clothing, or design light-up, personalised jewellery? We are here to help you make, repair and learn, regardless of your experience. 

We have skills and equipment for established crafts like woodworking and sewing; modern technologies such as laser cutting and 3D printing; and eco-activities such as fabric upcycling and furniture repair.

Each week we will introduce a new skill which you and your friends can explore and, if you want, combine with other techniques, or launch into a bigger project.  You can choose how you want to learn – trying new things, deepening one set of skills or creatively combining different techniques. Over 16s only.

  • WEEKLY MEET UP: TUESDAYS
  • START DATE: 5 OCTOBER
  • TIME: 11am – 12pm
  • VENUE: FARGO VILLAGE (CV1 5ED)

WHAT IS TRY IT?

Try It! is a programme encouraging Coventry residents to have a go at a range of new, and often quirky, health-giving creative activities during our year as UK City of Culture.

We believe in social prescribing – the idea that, by taking part in community activities, we can all improve our health and wellbeing. 

This project aims to enhance the lives of community members and leave a lasting legacy of creative activities in Coventry.

For each workshop, you can book tickets online or pay at the door.
