The National Festival of Making

The National Festival of Making is a unique celebration of making, from the kitchen table to the factory floor. Presenting a programme of work that combines Art, Manufacturing, Making and Communities, we commission international and national artists to create world class works, a year round programme and a participatory FREE FAMILY festival for all to enjoy.

The fourth festival weekend returns to the manufacturing heartland of Blackburn, Lancashire over Sat 11th – Sun 12th June 2022, promising two more exciting days of innovative art installations, workshops and markets throughout the town centre. We hope you can MAKE it!
