Eagle House Pop-Up Furniture Factory

A pop-up furniture factory will open its doors this autumn, offering training and employment for Knowle West residents. The Furniture Factory will be hiring two local residents as paid trainees, as well as offering volunteering opportunities. There will also be a series of workshops where people can learn about digital manufacturing techniques and make something that they can take away. Equipment will include a CNC milling machine and a laser cutter. We hope that the pop-up factory will lead to routes into sustainable employment for local people. There will be lots of opportunities to get involved in this exciting and practical programme. For more details contact justin.ricks@kwmc.org.uk or hazel.grian@kwmc.org.uk on 0117 903 0444

The Cardboard Living Room at KWMC

The Junior Digital Producers at KWMC have produced some really interesting work whilst being at KWMC. The room, which includes a full-size bookcase, television and grandfather clock is the backdrop to a survey encouraging people to reflect on their lifestyle and community. The furniture is brought to life in the room which allows people to answer questions by interacting with the furniture! Find out more at http://kwmc.org.uk/projects/datapatchwork/
