Who’s behind Making Uncovered?

The event is organised by volunteers at Makerhood − a social enterprise and maker collective in Brixton, London. We’re doing this in our spare time because we want to share the fun and the beauty of making with all of you.

We thank our wonderful sponsors − Diverse Gift Shop and WBC − who have helped pay for costs like insurance and flyers, and to Brixton Market for helping spread the word. We’re also grateful to Andy Luckett of Brixton East, who is lending us free his beautiful venue for this event.

Get involved!

If you’d like to help us on the day or in preparation we’d love that!
