A new maker community is emerging, connecting the culture of traditional skills and materials with modern-day digital production, distribution and interaction techniques.  Taking a conference strand from discussion to practical exploration, Handmade brings the dialogue to life around the intersection of craft and digital culture, in one of Manchester’s prime heritage locations.

Victoria Baths co-hosts a day of contemporary craft. digital hacking, interactivities and DIY culture. This is an all-new forum for Crafters, Hackers and Digital Innovators to share ideas and practice, led by some of the UK’s leading digital crafters. Our Handmade Fair will showcase a variety of artists, whilst the UK’s only FabLab moves to Handmade for the day, inviting the public to play with their digital manufacturing equipment and create something they can take away with them.
