Dirt Factory x Underway Free Workshops

Dirt Factory Pop-Up to open at Mayfield Manchester
Dirt Factory Pop-Up welcomes first school group

Get your creative juices flowing and help to make unique items for the Dirt Factory Pop-Up.

Come along to the free Dirt Factory x Underway Workshops throughout March and help to bring old bike parts back into use. Our workshops bring together the bike brains of Dirt Factory and making minds of Underway.  We´ll be creating a whole bunch of items for the space using spare bike parts and YOU. A table made of a bike frame? Let’s try it! Pedals as door handles? Why not!

Free Workshops

The Dirt Factory Pop-Up will house a range of exciting bike trails and features, designed for riders of all ages and abilities. This is your chance to have fun and experiment with the materials around us, seeing how they can influence and shape the space. It’s the perfect chance to pick up some knowledge about BMXing, design and joinery along the way. You may even get the chance to have a pre-opening guided tour of trails at the end of the workshop.

The Dirt Factory x Underway Workshops will take place every Saturday throughout March, from 1pm to 4pm. These free workshops are on a drop-in basis (under-16s should be accompanied by an adult) but we encourage all who plan to attend to register here. No making or biking experience necessary and what we’ll be making depends on items acquired, parts required and your imagination.

Keep an eye on @DirtFactoryMCR and @UnderwayMCR to see some of the creations!
