WITH FABLAB Coventry

Make, repair and upcycle all sorts of things!

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.

  • START DATE: 5th February
  • TIME: 9.30am-11am and 11.30am-1pm

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.
