Looking for something unusual to do this summer holiday? Interested in disassembling toys, fiddling with microscopes or printing with sunlight? Then come along to ASMbly 2017 – a twelve day arts, science and maker festival taking place in the St John's Centre in Leeds. This curious mixture of interactive science museum, laboratory and studio space offers a range of hands-on activities and workshops for all ages.

ASMbly Lab is our annual pop-up studio/laboratory/workshop in Leeds city centre, facilitating cross-disciplinary collaboration between artists, scientists and makers.

The Lab is open to the public and this provides a range of crucial engagement opportunities with audiences while enabling collaborations to develop with other Lab participants. To increase our critical audience engagement, this year we are designing an exciting programme of talks, critiques, exhibitions, workshops and hands on visitor activities to compliment our Lab activities. 

 *Opening times vary from day to day please check the website for a full of programme events as times vary for each event. Booking is required for some workshops.

Over the 12 days, we will be hosting an art/ science exhibition, a series of 10 workshops, art/sci/maker drop-in activities, a superposition event and a performance night. 

Workshops: include Perfume making workshops, Rainbow Badge workshops, Minecraft coding, Frankentoys, Maker Games, PatternCraft, Real Sugar Molecules and the Art & Science of shadow puppets.
