We hosted a series of workshops designed to offer visitors a more hands-on maker experience as part of the 2016 Edinburgh Mini Maker Faire on Sunday 10 April.

Geometric Embroidery
Maker and maths enthusiast Jessica Stanley showed visitors aged 12+ how to make complex geometric shapes by following a few simples steps as they embroidered their own piece of 2D geometry to take home.

Sewn Circuits
Visitors aged 12+ got crafting with electronics in this introduction to building circuits into fabric. Maker Jessica Stanley showed them how to sew a simple circuit with silver-plated conductive thread with maker, and design and make their own light-up LED constellation with a piece of fabric and a few basic electronic components.

Make a Silver Ring
Ages 14+
Jeweller Scarlett Erskine gave visitors aged 14+ a taste of jewellery making by creating a silver ring. Participants learned basic skills of saw piercing, texturing and soldering metal by making their own silver ring to take home.
