HIGHLIGHTs: THE DUTCH CYCLIST

We are excited to share our biggest highlight of the Faire – literally. The Dutch Cyclist from this year’s Manchester Day Parade stands at 5 metres tall, so you’re sure to spot it towering over the Mini Maker Faire in the Museum of Science and Industry’s Upper Yard.
Manchester Friends of the Earth partnered with artist Julian Taylor (who created many of the Superlambananas that spread across Liverpool as part of the Capital of Culture celebrations) to create the cyclist, who was pedalled around Manchester during the parade. Julian will be at the Faire to share the making process that goes into creating such a giant structure.
Thanks to Walk the Plank for helping us bring a small part of the Parade to Manchester Mini Maker Faire.
