Our event is happening as part of MAKE SMTHNG Week, a week of action where people come together to gather first hand experience on making more of what we already own – by sharing, caring, repairing, upcycling, pimping and swapping fashion, food, tech and toys. It’s a great way to learn a new skill and transform materials into something awesome.

This all-ages event, in partnership with Jack London Square, is accompanied by a tree lighting ceremony. It’s the perfect start to the holiday season!
