Meet the Makers

MOSI projects

Gary paints counters for a giant Connect Four inspired game

MOSI staff really got behind the Manchester Mini Maker Faire. Some of the Technical Services team created giant versions of games inspired by the much loved KerPlunk and Connect Four. We had a sneaky play on these the other day and we’re sure that the whole family will love challenging each other. 

Creative play in the Atelier space

In a little corner of the Textiles Gallery is what MOSI calls their Atelier space. Fantastic sensory experiences have been designed specially for under-5s, including those with special needs and disabilities. Hour long sessions are scheduled through the day at 10.30am, 12.30pm, 2.00pm and 3.30pm. Spaces are limited.

You can also have a go at paper making, which is a session usually only offered to school groups visiting MOSI. Produce a piece of hand crafted paper using an old fashioned mould, deckle and press. This will be run as a drop-in workshop, so check the times when you arrive at the Museum. Remember that the paper has to dry out!
