maker’s day

A day to introduce people to a range of skills and crafts on Tuesday 20 November

Maker Day is a mini-festival of making and celebrating the talented people in our borough who make beautiful objects. On the day, we have opportunities for all ages to learn how to craft and create, including learning to make your own lace, a bunting and clay station. These sessions will be lead by expert crafts people who have made a great success of these skills and all have passion to share their knowledge with others. At Martin’s Corner, 5 Porters Avenue, Dagenham RM9 5YS.
