Part of a series of Show Me How – Hands on craft/making sessions running throughout June, July and August. These sessions are a great way to learn how to make things, meet other people and talk about the value of practical skills.

Each workshop will include a practical session led by a local maker, refreshments and the opportunity to discuss ideas and issues around making and co-working. 

The sessions are FREE to attend and unless stated otherwise, all materials will be provided. 

The full programme of sessions: 

Tuesday 9 June: Turn spare materials into useful objects led by James Woodcock

Tuesday 30 June: Crochet and Craft Activism, led by Sarah Green

Tuesday 14 July – Functional Pottery led by Jo Keogh

Tuesday 28 July – Construct a birdbox with Peter Leadbeater

Tuesday 4 August – Basic Silversmithing with Hannah Smith

You can come to one, or more, or all of the sessions but capacity is limited so booking is essential. 

Show Me How is a project devised by the artist Ania Bas and delivered as part of Market Town, a programme of commissions and critical debate that sets out to reimagine the future of Loughborough’s high streets.

Please note: the Organ Grinder Pub has no disabled access.

Drawing on academic research from across the Social Sciences at Loughborough, Making it up: this moment of June investigates forms and relations of listening that (re)produce and are (re)produced by personal and public places, focusing on the interactions that might support people to perform music but are not in themselves musical.

Rebecca has brought together an ensemble of Loughborough musicians to reflect on these ideas and together they will trace boundaries of music, place and registers of listening, exploring how these might be brought within a performance. A public recording session will share the results, which will then re-sound in a playback programme on our Loughborough campus and in the town over the summer period.

This event is part of (re)composition, Radar's main commissioning strand for 2017/18, which explores how music makes place and places make music. The project draws on the research of Dr Allan Watson in Loughborough University's Department of Geography, and has expanded to engage with research across the Social Sciences.

Disturbing Space is a radio station and sound system on a custom bicycle which answers to no body, place or time. The bicycle, "Soon Reach" was developed by sound artist Xana in response to a series of workshops in Loughborough, Leicester and London around the themes of connecting through sound, displaced geographies and building free spaces to manifest joy.

Disturbing Space reflects on the power of pirate radio, textile printing and songs about movement, lullabies, rhymes and tales which elevate Black voices; creating a journey that is chosen by the traveller and fuelled by music.

"Soon Reach" will be pedalled through Loughborough and passers by are invited to meet with the station and contribute to the broadcast. Exact location details will be added here closer to the date. 

This event is part of (re)composition, Radar's main commissioning strand for 2017/18, which explores how music makes place and places make music. The project draws on the research of Dr Allan Watson in Loughborough University's Deparment of Geography, and has expanded to engage with research across the Social Sciences.
