Makers place, Leichhardt
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.
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.
