Build Your Own: Tools for Sharing explores the connections betwee craft, technology and community. From 3D printing prosthetics, to handing over your garden to a robot, these four new commissions showcase the potential of skill-sharing and collaborative making in the real world.
The wide range of projects that fit under the Build Your Own umbrella show that the nature of craft and DIY has changed drastically. New times call for new skills - but the old ones have an important role too. This exhibition will explore what the democratisation of digital tools really means, whom the emergence of new technologies will affect, and how traditional craft skills can connect with new digital tools.
