Description

This conference,organised by the University of Sheffield in collaboration with the Libraries Taskforce, Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, will share the outcomes of a project in which Library Services in three authorities (Barnley, Sheffield and SouthTyneside) offered makerspace workshops for children aged 3-8 and their families.

During the day, you will have chance to learn about the projects, hear from other Library Services who are active in this area, and have an opportunity to do some handson making!

Attendees will:

- Find out what ‘makerspaces’ are all about

- Hear about how makerspaces can be run in Libraries

- Learn about the value of offering makerspaces in Libraries

- Try out some simple and fun maker activities
