If You Make It, They Will Come!

Calling Makers of All Varieties to Brighton Mini Maker Faire 2013

Yes, it’s that time of year again: The third annual Brighton Mini Maker Faire is on the horizon and we’re on the lookout for makers of every sort to help us create an even more mind-blowingly eclectic, enlightening and awe-inspiring event. If you think this could be you, read on…

Last year over 7,000 people of all ages came to Brighton’s Corn Exchange to experience a vast range of makers showing off their skills and projects, at one of the biggest Maker Faires in the country. You can read more about exactly what happened by listening to last year’s live podcasts or watching the official video.

Because it was so popular, we’ve decided to extend the event over two days this year, and will be running even more in-depth workshops and talks, so that our visitors can get more involved, learn more skills and have an even more memorable and rewarding time.

We’re looking for Makers, Educational Facilitators and other volunteers for this year’s event on 7th & 8th September. Whether you want to show off a project, teach skills to others, run a workshop or just help out, we’d love to hear from you.  A ‘Maker’ can be anyone who makes things and wants to share it with others. This could include…

Electronics | Building | Coding | Learning & Discovery  | Machines & Tools |Woodworking | Engineering | Food Hacking | Science Experiments | Education | Robotics | Lego | Metalworking | Audio Inventions | Fine Arts | Musical Makes | Games | Alternative Energy | Cosplay & LARPing | Rocketry | Needlecrafts | Bushcraft | Upcycling | Wearables | Steampunk | Model Vehicles | Sculpture | Jewellery Making | Printmaking | Glassmaking | Papercrafts | Alternative Transport | Biohacking

…and any other type of making you can think of!

Interested? You can apply to be a maker at http://www.makerfairebrighton.com/makers-2013/ between 13th May and 7th June.

Other volunteers and educators who’d like to be involved should get in touch here: http://www.makerfairebrighton.com/volunteer/
