Recycling Roman Ruins

19 November, 2018, 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Free

Join archaeologist Beth Munro, glassworker Shelley James and metalsmith Necole Schmitz to explore how ancient craftspeople transformed Roman glass mosaics and metal pipes to make objects inspired by Roman recycling. This event will highlight recent archaeological research on Roman villa recycling and investigate the properties of ancient materials through exciting hands-on making. You will work with expert makers to physically undertake Roman-style recycling and take home your own creations.

The Institute of Making is a multidisciplinary research club for those interested in the made world: from molecules to buildings, synthetic skin to spacecraft, soup to diamonds, socks to cities. Through its Makespace, Materials Library and events programme, the Institute aims to provide all makers with a creative home in which to innovate, contemplate and understand all aspects of materials and explore their relationship to making.
