Countdown to Maker Faire UK 2017

March 28, 2017

It’s hard to believe but Maker Faire UK is almost upon us again.

It’s on this Saturday and Sunday 1st and 2nd April at the Centre for Life in Newcastle.

Full details are here:

I’m planning on taking my latest Raspberry Pi Synth along, something I’ve called unimaginatively PiZynth. As well as the pi synth I’ll have my Pi based R-Kade Mini.

So two full days of maker stuff to look ahead too. 🙂


Maker Faire UK 2015

April 27, 2015

Maker Faire UK 2015 is over for another year 😦

But it was another great weekend of meeting fellow makers and creatives from around the UK and the world.

With my fellow local makers, I was on the Maker Space stand with various great projects on display. Ed’s 1D Pong, my R-Kade, Jon’s Over Eng’d, Iain, Tommy and Alistair’s Christmas window (I know we’re into April), Glen’s 3D Printer and EggBot, Chris B’s LED cubes, Chris D’ custom retro console, Rosie with her sewing.

Hightlights of the weekend for me where:

Meeting up [again :-)] with Aaron from Oomlout was there again.

Likewise meeting up with Mitch Altman of TV-B-Gone fame and co-founder of Noisebridge was there again.

and meeting a great number of other makers from the UK, Europe and rest of the world was great was well.

The Saturday night meet up in the Union Rooms for food and beer was a great night out. Lots and lots of people showed up and a few didn’t get back home until the very early hours on Sunday morning 🙂
