Maker Faire Newcastle is March 13-14, 2010

We’re excited to announce that Maker Faire is coming back to Newcastle this year!

Following the outstanding success of the first UK Maker Faire which was attended by over 7000 visitors, we are thrilled to announce Maker Faire 2010! Once again, Maker Faire will be heading to North East England as part of the Newcastle ScienceFest – a 10 day festival celebrating creativity and innovation.

New to Maker Faire? Maker Faire celebrates things people create themselves — from James Bond-worthy electronic gizmos to homemade clothes. Inspiration is ubiquitous at the festival and there are surprises around every corner for people of all ages.

“We want people to experience more than just a weekend of creative entertainment, we want them to leave feeling inspired — that they too can create things, express themselves, and engage the world around them. Our goal is to resuscitate the spirit of creativity and innovation.” – Sherry Huss, Event Director

At Maker Faire, technology meets art, science meets fashion, engineering meets crafting and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. This DIY festival features cool robots, clever gadgets, garden shed inventions, knitted wonders, renegade fashions, cars and bikes like you’ve never seen before, the occasional fireball, music-making and much, much more!

    Personally can’t wait for this. If last year’s is anything to go by, this year is bound to be amazing, or even better!

    we need one down south too!

    helluva trek (well, not by US standards maybe…) all the way up from the deep south.

    Excellent news. I’m glad it’s in Newcastle again as being Edinburgh based it only takes me 1hr30mins to get there. Friends from London did it in a day last year too, and it only took them 3hrs each way.
