We love this example of the Maker Movement in action in the community. At iOi’s Imagination Lab, we use making, doing and play to encourage children to think and problem solve creatively. This program in Liverpool is making those connections by keeping alive skills that traditionally would have been passed down through the family.

Meet the toddlers who are being taught how to sew, mend, bake and fix punctures at Liverpool’s first inter-generational and sustainable cafe.

Founded by Liverpool John Moore’s University lecturer, Diane Boyd the cafe offers older people the chance to pass on traditional skills such as mending punctures, knitting and darning.
