Using simple junk materials, build your own working vinyl record player to take home and use. Dust off your old records and bring them along to play*.

These workshops will be delivered by vintage sound recordists Lathe Revival.

*Bring 33rpm or 78rpm discs only (no 45rpms). We’d encourage you not to bring your most precious records.
