NTU Maker Club workshops at City Campus


Willow weaving.

Safety and Wellbeing Services are excited to be working with the NTU Maker Club again to bring its workshops to the City Campus for a staff-only event aimed at improving wellbeing.

What is the NTU Maker Club?

The Maker Club at NTU offers staff and students the opportunity to be part of a creative community of learning and sharing, through practical craft-based activities.
Free to attend, the Maker Club delivers workshops in an informal setting with support from staff and student mentors.
Participants in the Maker Club sessions can take advantage of activities that develop specialist skills and techniques within a variety of practical, engaging and collaborative workshop sessions.

What will we be doing?

Those attending this Maker Club session will be given a great introduction to the craft of willow weaving by local craftsman and green woodworking expert Peter Wood of Greenwood Days. These taster sessions are designed to explore making smaller creations working with willow; you will learn about the materials while making a variety of items, which could include, fish, butterflies, flowers, bird feeders, platters, snails and more!

The event will take place on Wednesday 28 February in the Newton Building, Forum 0. The sessions will be held at the following times and will last approximately two hours:

  • 12.30 pm
  • 2.30 pm

To book a place, please contact Louise Hamilton; spaces are limited to a maximum of 10 per session.
