Brighton Mini Maker Faire is back for the fourth year running with more maker projects than ever before taking over the Corn Exchange on Saturday, 6th September. Expect to see all sorts from underwater robots, smartphone controlled DIY cars, 3D printing, clowns made out of felt, exploding foam, electrically conductive paint, crochet and amigurumi, and mosaic making to name just a few.
There is a rumour that members of the Star Wars Rebel Legion will be coming, too. May the force be with them! Also, watch out for the roving Daleks who keep causing havoc at Maker Faires.
This year there will be 70 maker projects and workshops. More than 4000 people are expected to walk through the door ready to get their hands dirty with some soldering action, felt-making, toy hacking, and lots of other fun and games.
The Young Inventors Centre at the faire will be a new feature. Children will be able to take part in a workshop themed ‘a Noisy, Wearable, Playful combination’ led by 12 artists from the South of England and North of France, organised by Exploring Senses and supported by ReCreate, an Interreg EU funded programme.
Advance tickets cost only £6 for adults, (£8 on the door) with kids going FREE.
