image of circuit board being solderedSome time ago, we gave very advance notice of Bristol’s first ever Mini Maker Faire (news passim). More information has now been received from the organisers, as set out below:

Saturday 23rd March is the date set for Bristol’s first Mini Maker Faire, a family-friendly event at which people show what they are making and share what they are learning.

It takes place at M Shed (, and is one of the community-driven, independently produced Mini Maker Faire events inspired by the Maker Faires in the US.

Typically, Maker Faires and Mini Maker faires include stalls run by those who are involved in Robotics, Music Performance and Participation, Textile Arts and Crafts, Bicycles, Kites, Green Tech, Puppets, Home Energy Monitoring, Rockets and RC Toys, 3D printing, Radios, Vintage Computers and Game Systems, Electric Vehicles, Biology/Biotech and Chemistry Projects, Shelter (Tents, Domes, etc.), Unusual Tools or Machines, and How to Fix Things or Take them Apart (Vacuums, Clocks, Washing Machines, etc.)

The organisers are currently looking for makers who would enjoy being part of this show-and-tell event, and invite anyone who is interested to contact them via this online form: * *
