Steam bending demonstration with Joshua Till
Watch furniture designer/maker Joshua Till bring the traditional craft of steam bending to life at this free demonstration.
Steam bending is a traditional process, steeped in history. Once a vital practice used to produce the hulls of boats and to make tools and weapons, with the advance of technology it has become less common.
Economically and environmentally responsible, the technique has enabled Joshua to experiment and develop a new, exciting furniture collection, on display at MCDC in his first ever solo exhibition, Modern Twist.
Join us for this event, part of Get Creative Weekend, to learn more about the history of steam bending, see Joshua in action and find out why he hopes to keep the heritage of this dwindling craft alive.
Free drop-in, Saturday 8th April. 2-5pm.
