Do It Yourself?

An intriguing history of DIY

In partnership with the BBC as part of its centenary celebrations

From DIY TV programmes to current DIY trends on social media, this unique, quirky exhibition will explore the intriguing past, present and future of DIY. The exhibition, in partnership with the BBC, will not only explore how DIY has been represented in the media, but will also showcase a vast amount of objects associated with DIY, as well as exploring how DIY is changing as we learn more about the importance of sustainability and healthy living spaces and materials.
