Our fabulous GIGA events in collaboration with Merseyside Waste Authority encouraging people to repair rather then replace. We had a number of repair workshops at our sister site and On The Road across Merseyside. We are very proud to know we saved a vast amount from going to landfill and saved people money.
We attended our first Comic Con at Southport with North West Comic Cons. Drik and Dread dalek certainly enjoyed themselves and allowed Earthlings and Cosplayers alike to have their photos taken with them.
We donated a very special lambing chair we had upcycled to Presfield Specialist School which the children loved.
The Boss jumped out a plane at 13,000 feet to raise money for Muscular Dystrophy and lived to tell the tale. What a fabulous 60th birthday present from the team and how proud we all are, well done Ray on raising £167.00.
Being invited to join Sandpipers for their themed British T.V breakfast with Drik and Dread to surprise the guests.
Having the pleasure of attending not 1 but 2 wonderful Doctor Who themed weddings with Drik and Dread daleks. One right here in Southport the other in Lancashire.
Other great events included the Wesley Street Festival, The Chilli Festival and Loving Lodge Lane.
Our 7th year and this has been the best so far. Thank you all for your support – without which we wouldn’t continue to exist.
Happy Christmas Everyone. We are using Memory Tree instead of decorations this year.
MakeItWorkShop’s resident Daleks Dread and Drik recently had 2 very special Vip invitations and were extremely excited.
Will Corfield and Nicola Oldham were celebrating a Whoovian themed wedding at the fabulous Lakeside Suite in Southport.
Sworn to their best behaviour not to exterminate anyone, Drik and Dread made their way along Lord Street towards the reception.
They did stop for a few Selfies on the way with a few shoppers wanting to say Hi.
Both the Bride and groom looked amazing and Bridesmaids were all dressed in Tardis blue.
The Bride and Groom were seated at the head table with their own Sonic Screwdrivers side by side. Dread and Drik were behind. This gave them a great vantage point to see all the guests and plot their demise if they misbehaved.
It was a family friendly Doctor Who wedding. They used blue as a key colour … which was completed with a beautiful Doctor Who cake topper – The Doctor and His Companion running. Decorated in Gallifreyian text – the language of the Time Lords. It looked amazing.
The Lakeside Suite was a perfect location overlooking the Marine Lake. The entrance was adorned with a River Song Journal as a Guest Book which the team signed on behalf of Drik and Dread. There were also small wooden hearts to write a message on and post into a picture frame. The Tardis blue theme carried into the blue chair sashes and napkin ties, and also had blue LEDs in the centre pieces
Thank you for a wonderful day Will and Nicola Oldham.
Dalek Drik (our 7ft gold Dalek) is available for hire and a quote on request can be provided. Dalek Dread (5ft Black Dalek) has returned to Skaro and isnt returning our calls at the moment.
