About Edinburgh Mini Maker Faire:

The Edinburgh Mini Maker Faire returned for the fourth time in April 2016. It brought together makers from across the land in a celebration of all things DIY – from cutting edge technologies to time honoured crafts, offering the chance for makers, enthusiasts, geeks, tinkerers, engineers and artists, young and old, to mingle and to show off their work.

More details on the 2016 Edinburgh Mini Maker Faire will be added soon, but in the meantime you can check out video highlights from the 2015 Edinburgh Mini Maker Faire below:

About Maker Faire:

Maker Faire is the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth—a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker Movement. It’s a place where people show what they are making, and share what they are learning.

Makers range from tech enthusiasts to crafters to homesteaders to scientists to garage tinkerers. They are of all ages and backgrounds. The aim of Maker Faire is to entertain, inform, connect and grow this community.

The original Maker Faire event was held in San Mateo, CA and in 2015 celebrated its tenth annual show with some 1100+ makers and 145,000 people in attendance. World Maker Faire New York, the other flagship event, has grown in four years to 600+ makers and 80,000 attendees. Detroit, Kansas City, Atlanta, Milwaukee, Orlando, Pittsburgh, San Diego, Silver Spring, Ottawa, Lisbon, Paris, Rome, Berlin, Newcastle, Hannover, Oslo, Trondheim, Seoul, Singapore, Taipei, Tokyo, and Shenzhen are the home of larger-scale, “featured” Maker Faires. In addition, over 120 community-driven, independently organized Mini Maker Faires are now being produced around the United States and the world—including right here in Edinburgh.

Maker Faire is supported by Make: magazine and Maker Media.

  2. I was at the faire, and I liked the stacked bicycle and the wooden one and didn’t take the opportunity to photograph some of the bicycles – Can you put me in touch with whoever does these?
