The Institute of Making is turning 2, come and celebrate our birthday with us!

This March we will be celebrating metal in all its diversity. Come along and explore metals that have memory, a jet engine turbine blade made from a single crystal, and the wondrous material life of gold in the Materials Library. See some 3D printed metal objects, have a go at electroplating, hammer bowls and spoons from copper, and make your own wire sculpture with artist Helaina Sharpley in the MakeSpace. Watch scientist Andres Tretiakov set fire to metals, creating sparks to see the beautiful colours metals emit. Listen to and watch live performances from a steel drum band.
