It’s the sixth episode in our Meet The Makers series as we build up to the Liverpool MakeFest event on Saturday June 30th 2018.

Back in the comfort of the studio this time after my recent travels. I had a great chat with Kisha Bradley and Ruth Amos about #GirlsWithDrills and a lot more besides. Check out their website and grab yourself a t-shirt or hoodie to help fund maker sessions for kids who otherwise might not get the chance to discover how great creativity can be.

PRODUCERS NOTE: My apologies for some occasional Skype interference on the recorded audio. I don’t think it will affect your enjoyment but I will endeavour to make sure it doesn’t happen again!

Meet The Makers 5 – Urban Workbench

It’s the fifth episode in our Meet The Makers series as we build up to the Liverpool MakeFest event on Saturday June 30th 2018.

This week I chatted with Steve Threlfall and Angelo Madonna of Urban Workbench. We sat outside their workshop in the glorious Liverpool sunshine to chat about what they do, what drives them and many other things besides. It was a lot of fun. You will also hear impromptu contributions from a noisy sea gul, various delivery van drivers and other workshops nearby. Enjoy!

During this episode Steve shows me a table made by one of the attendees on a course and talks about it. Here’s a couple of pictures so you can get an idea.

This week I caught up with another previous guest on the show, Chelsea Slater of Liverpool Girl Geeks.

Hope you enjoy it! Check out – http://liverpoolgirlgeeks.co.uk to find out more.
