“What is an Open Access workshop; what could it be?”
The aim was to temporarily convert and reinvent the Turkish Baths on Friar’s Walk in Lewes UK, into both an open access workshop (community makers space) and a festival venue for talks, meetings and symposium. Specifically the project aimed at creating a making-culture space to engage and inspire the public as well as communicate what a maker’s space is and how it could relate to the town and its inhabitants. For the purpose of building evidence and support to get Lewes District council to rethink their decision for the future of the Turkish Baths. This was a University of England associated project, though I worked individually with both Tangentfield and Studio Hardie.
