December Make/Share: Creativity and Self-Care

Venue: The Beer Kitchen Dundee // Date: December 12 // Time: 7-8:30pm

Make/Share is a free monthly event which brings people together to gain a behind the scenes insight into their creative processes, held on the second Wednesday of each month, at The Beer Kitchen Dundee, from 7pm – 8.30pm.

Join us on Tuesday December 12th and hear short talks by four local makers about the processes behind turning their ideas into reality, and how living and working in Dundee influences their work. The theme for this month is ‘Creativity and Self-Care’.

Speakers explore how their project or product has evolved, how they experiment, what their biggest challenges have been and how they were overcome. After the talks we have a short opportunity for any questions to the speakers, and for you to share your upcoming events with the group.

We’re delighted that The Beer Kitchen is our official sponsor venue for Make/Share and supports the event with a complementary beer or soft drink at arrival. Also, exclusively for Make/Share attendees, after 5pm you can claim a 10% on any food or drink at the Beet Kitchen!

You don’t need to sign up, just come along!
