Materials Library: Contributor since August 2018

KWMC The Factory / UWE & Others collaborative venture exploring materials new & old with a focus on sustainability.

Meeting regularly to discuss, create and play, the Materials Library venture is an exploration into the complexities of creating a library of materials as a shared-city asset. The group share research, projects and ideas. We address questions like; how to categorise types of materials? What can we do? What are the pros & cons of physical vs virtual libraries?

Our focus is on serving the diverse communities of designers, makers, developers, creatives, builders, hoarders and recyclers. We are looking to host public events in 2022.
