For one week, Object Gallery will become a live workshop and making space occupied by creative individuals and collectives. Produced by Kate Ford, We Craft This City is a celebration of DIY culture, weaving together craft process and social commentary.

An intensive making period will mark the beginning of this gallery occupation, and you are invited to contribute to the outcome. Donate materials, learn and share skills, make and be merry.
