Makers place, Leichhardt

whats on
This makers place / maker space opened last night in Leichhardt.  It is a pop up space, so it will be interesting to see what happens over time.  There were other things there, but I could not have photographed them without being really intrusive.  A potter was making pots on a wheel, there were four 3D printers, a microbiology space and a few other things.  It looks really interesting.  Thanks to @anne_doherty1 for the information about this.

You can see a few more photographs of the space here.

Three farm are working with various partners on this, including the local council.

Sculpture in the Italian Forum, Leichhardt
I have no idea if this sculpture is linked to the Makers place (I think it may be), but as I am reading Un Lun Dun by China Mieville it seems a rather wonderful connection with that novel, and a wonderful reuse of brooms.
