Maker Faire UK 2018


We’ve hammered down the dates for Maker Faire UK 2018. Whether you want to grab your hand-bound calendar, chisel it onto a wooden plaque or code a countdown clock, make sure you don’t forget that Maker Faire UK will be back at Life Science Centre, Newcastle, on 28 - 29 April 2018!

Maker Faire UK is the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth—a family-friendly festival of creators, crafters, coders and DIY-ers, where everyone is encouraged to get stuck in! It brings together hundreds of hackers, crafters, inventors and coders from across the globe – people who love to make stuff and who want to share their passion with the public.

This year’s headline Makers include Steamroadsters, wasteland versions of penny farthings, Waterlight Graffiti, who have combined water and LEDs to make art and The Herd, a scrapheap safari. It’s really great fun for adults and kids alike, with all sorts of different things to try your hand at, from traditional crafts - including leather making and weaving - to hi-tech hacks, including robotics and coding. Prepare to be inspired!

There’ll be plenty of live entertainment on the day too. You can find out more about Maker Faire 2018, as well as check out a full list of makers at
