There has also been allot of preparation for Artefact cafe and Made in Brunel, if you are about then please come along and have a chat! it would be great to speak to you, come and get involved in some of our design workshops. Please see bellow the flyer, you can download it here for email or forwarding. Please come along and get involved!
