Meet the Maker: Build Brighton

As part of our “Meet the Makers” interview series, we asked our Makers to tell us a little about themselves. Today, meet Arthur from Build Brighton!

Build Brighton1) Who are you and where do you come from?

My name is Arthur, I am originally from Hastings but after going to university in Brighton I decided to stick around.

2) What do you do?

I am a web developer by day but in the evenings I indulge my first love and help with the running of the local hackspace, Build Brighton, as well as work on a number of personal projects including a CNC machine and a variety of internet connected devices.

3) Do you have a website?

4) What will you have on your stall?

I will be showing off a couple of the projects I have been working on including a homemade CNC machine. I will also be joined by a number of other Build Brighton members who will be showing off their projects.

Items that have popped up on our stall at previous Maker Faires include 3D printers, Death Stars, latex monster masks, giant Scalextrix tracks and remote-controlled robots.

5) Are you running any workshops?

No but we will likely be helping out with the nearby Soldering Workshop, which is being run by Build Brighton members.

6) Have you been to a Maker Faire before?

I have been to the last two years’ Brighton Mini Maker Faires and I was lucky enough to visit the Shenzhen Maker Faire earlier in the year.

7) Anything else you want to share?

Don’t forget to stop by the Build Brighton stall and say hello.

Build Brighton are proud supporters of the Brighton Mini Maker Faire!

Discounted advance tickets for Brighton Mini Maker Faire 2014 are now available!
