Laura Jones is our artist in residence in FabLab @ The Word and will be running these sessions as a participatory arts project. Once you’ve created your unique item you’ll then be able to take it away with you. Laura will then use your designs to help create an art installation to be displayed at The Word in April 2020.

*Please note: Sessions will not take place on Saturday 30 November.
