Maker Faires of the World Unite!

With less than a week to go until we close the call for makers and start sifting through all the amazing applications that have come through, we thought it was worth taking afew minutes to take a look at what our global brethren have been up to.

Brighton Maker Faire is one of many events globally to inspire makers to get together and show off what they can do.

So when you come to Brighton you are one of tens of thousands globally this year alone!
