Manchester Mini Maker Faire 2014


We’re back for 2014, our third faire! This year’s weekend long festival of invention, creativity and resourcefulness will be Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 July, 2014.

Once again the Museum of Science & Industry will play host to all kinds of makers showing off their marvellous creations. From coders and programmers, crafters and stitchers, to artists and builders, there’s something for everyone at Manchester’s biggest show and tell.

We need lots of makers to make a Maker Faire!

Anyone who embraces the ‘do-it-yourself’ or ‘do-it-together’ spirit is welcome to apply. If you create, build, invent, design or hack then we want to hear from you! We welcome applications from individuals, groups, clubs, schools and businesses who want to share their skills and provide an engaging, hands-on experience for an appreciative audience.

3D Printing – Cycling Inventions – Young Makers – Interactive Workshops – Hands-on Activities –  Mechanics Projects – Textiles – Screen Printing – Robotics – Musical Instruments – Science Demos – Craft – Robotics – Software Projects – Toys – Games – Recycled Projects – Arts – Apps – Talks – Open Source – Traditional Craft – Programming – Unusual Machines – How to Fix Things – Arduino – Raspberry Pi – Conductive Materials – Alternative Energies – Black Smithing
