The Millennium Gallery will run activities between 11am and 4pm on Saturday and 11am-3pm on Sunday. See designers, makers, sculptors, textileartists and knife-makers.

Other venues taking part include Portland Works on Randall Street, Access Space on Sidney Street, and the new home of Sheffield Institute of Art in the refurbished old post office on Fitzalan Square.

The weekend is part of Ruskin in Sheffield, Sheffield Hallam University’s Catalyst Festival of Creativity, and Year of Making.
