Front Room Factories

From global brands and mass manufacturers to kitchen table makers, The National Festival of Making celebrates making at all scales, in all forms.

Front Room Factories is a special commission that explores manufacturing at home, where making is a way of life and part of the fabric of everyday living.

The documentary film, ‘Front Room Factories’ premiering at Festival of Making, will focus on makers living in the Borough of Blackburn and Darwen, discovering the artisans who are an integral part of the manufacturing and making mix.
