MAKE YOUR OWN MAKE MY DAY! @ HOME
This year’s Make My Day has undergone a radical rethink to ensure creativity and community spirit carry on in these strange times. As ever the community and the participants are the festival and this year more so than ever as we encourage people to MAKE YOUR OWN MAKE MY DAY @ HOME - providing quality artist designed workshops with instructions and videos to create at home.
Each week in the run up to Make My Day! at Home | Sun 9th Aug 1-3pm we'll release a new activity. You can make along at home in your own time. Pick and choose your favourites or get stuck in and make them all. Then fill your window or yard with your creations to showcase to the outside world!
