At last, London is getting a Maker Faire -- albeit a "mini-Faire." The Elephant and Castle Mini Maker Faire will take place on July 6, and I'm pleased to say that I'll be one of the keynote speakers. There'll be everything you love about Maker Faires on offer, of course, especially activities for young people. I took my daughter to the Newcastle Faire earlier this spring and she had the best time.
Elephant & Castle Mini Maker Faire, London’s first maker faire, is a go for Saturday, July 6 in Elephant & Castle, a small, bustling London neighborhood just south of the River Thames. The fair is being hosted by the London College of Communication. The Elephant & Castle Mini Maker Faire will offer a day of family-friendly making, learning, crafting, inventing and tinkering in the heart of London. Be inspired by arts, crafts, engineering, science and technology from more than 70 Makers offering demonstrations and hands on workshops in electronics, coding, hacking, tinkering, 3D printing, crafting and much more. Entry is free...
...Following the fair will be a second day of debates and discussion about making organized in part by the Victoria and Albert Museum. The organizing committee includes members of the 600-strong London Hackspace.
