What happens at the National Festival of Making?
The festival takes place from Town Hall Square to the Cathedral Quarter. Many things such as music, markets, street food, art, performance, tours, talks and workshops took place during the festival. During the two days at the festival my role as a volunteer was to help out in bivouac printing. This was where people would have a wide range of ideas to design the type of flag or tea towel that they would want.
What took place?
During our visit, the festival had many interesting things taking place. There were various amounts of activities that took place such as bivouac printing, action printing, creation station, mantra, Islamic art, steam pavilion, cardboard cinema and much more.
This took place within the heritage building. During my time there as a volunteer, I showed many people what was taking place at the stall I was at. My role was to explain how the printing will be done. What people could choose to print on and what they could do to their prints that they have created. Such as adding additional layers to make a more colourful and vibrant print.
