Fab Lab Manchester's Festival of Sound - Oct 2010


Make your own super groovy musical instruments at

Fab Lab Manchester!





From electric guitars to the iconic stylophone, thumb pianos to drum machines there is something for everyone to make!Air Drum Machine




Fab Lab will provide the materials and we'll share the know-how so you can make your own musical instruments, many of which you can keep and take home. Also we hope to create a few larger music based installations over the course of the festival which you can help to build. We will be playing these in a grand finale at the end of the festival.

The individual projects take different amounts of time to make but you should allow at least 3 hours.

The activities are suitable for ages 7+. All Children under 16 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

It is advisable to book your place at the festival as we are expecting a high turn-out and we cannot guarantee you a place if you just turn up.

This event is free to attend and materials for the various projects will be provided at no charge.

Event runs from 10am till 5pm. Last entry to the Lab is at 4pm.
