Following our Makers in Residence at Derby silk Mill, we will be present at an open day event at the museum that will showcase the work made by all the participants in the commission. Workshops and activities include: a giant spirograph, paper engineering, mutli-sensory trails, electronic circuits and a DIY marble run.
The Silk Mill residency was part of ‘Institute of STEAM’ that focused on exploring the themes and concepts across the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths to develop ideas around how creativity is integral to innovation and making.
The residency explored the co-production of experiences of making for museum audiences, inspired by the culture of making past, present and future. Makers developed and tested their ideas; exploring spaces and collections; whilst also informing their own creative practices.
