An annual festival of making based on the beautiful Isle of Arran. 11th-13th July, 10-5pm at Brodick Castle.
This event is participatory based where island makers come together to offer workshops and demonstrations. They also share their work through stalls and an exhibition trail.
The event considers its sustainability and the sustainability of the making processes engaged in. This year the exhibition has an upcycling theme, which will challenge everyone who enters to think about waste differently.
The Makers’ Festival is a wonderful family event and beyond the festival there is much to see and do at the castle and in its grounds. National Trust entrance fees apply, but once into the castle much of the festival is free. Where there is a charge it is nominal to cover cost of materials. All the makers give of their time and expertise free. Entertainment is also an important part of the event giving it a real festival feel.
All workshops and demonstrations are on a drop-in basis.
