Institute of Making: Blog

The University College of London's Institute of Making serves as "a multidisciplinary research club for those interested in the made world: from makers of molecules to makers of buildings, synthetic skin to spacecraft, soup to diamonds, socks to cities." The Institute's blog is frequently updated and invites readers to learn more about various materials and textiles, as well as find tutorials for some do-it-yourself projects. For example, a May 2020 post, "Materials Up Close & Personal: Rubbers," debunks the myth that all erasers are made from rubber materials, while a June 2020 post, "Materials Up Close & Personal: Salts," explores sodium chloride's "painful colonial legacies." Additionally, readers can sort blog posts by date (under Archive) or topic (under Categories). Entries date back to 2010, allowing readers to better understand the evolution of the Institute. The Institute of Making is co-directed by Zoe Laughlin, Mark Miodownik, and Martin Conreen and is supported by funding sources such as the Leverhulme Trust and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council.
