The Big Make: Video Workshops to Inspire Creativity

These video workshops have been commissioned by MAKE to inspire creativity in children and young people. They encourage activity that is non-screen based, with opportunities to create from items that can be found around the home. The workshops can be used by teachers, parents, or individually by children and young people. The age guidelines are indications for users, but people of all ages may like to try any of the videos.

Please share your creative outcomes with us on Instagram @makemiltonkeynes and Facebook @makemiltonkeynes using the hashtag #TheBigMake
