STEAMhouse, Birmingham, 2019

We’re working with STEAMhouse on a series of co-produced events in Birmingham, that will run throughout 2019. Through these events we hope to support the growing community of makers at STEAMhouse, and provide an opportunity for a diverse group of designers, craftspeople, artists and technologists to learn, be inspired, and get to know each other.

STEAMhouse is a new centre for creative innovation and cultural production that brings artists, inventors, engineers, entrepreneurs and makers together,  developed by Eastside Projects and Birmingham City University.

For full details – and to get tickets for forthcoming events – please see the STEAMhouse events page.

Previous and next events

13 March – Making tools for Makers: Kniterate and Assemble

Triambak Saxena from Kniterate and Joseph Halligan from Turner Prize-winning architectural collective Assemble to Birmingham to talk through their work, and experiences, as makers making tools for makers.

10 April – Making Materials: Zoe Powell, Materiom

Imagine if all our materials were nutrients. If there was no waste, but rather that our plastics and composites nourished living systems.

Materiom is an open platform that lets anyone contribute, use or adapt recipes for materials that learn from nature’s techniques for sourcing, building and breaking down the ingredients that make them up. Their mission is to enable everyone, everywhere to participate in the next generation of materials.

Multi-disciplinary designer-maker, and materials researcher Zoë Powell joins us to talk about materials that are regenerative by design and how designers, scientists, entrepreneurs, artists and citizens can use their open platform to work collectively on some of the greatest material challenges in the circular economy.
