October Show and Tell at Birmingham, UK’s FizzPOP

Along side the usual maker sessions, where we get together to work on individual projects, we want to create some more opportunities for local makers to collaborate. So, we’re going to try making the last maker session of each month a “show and tell” where you can find out what other makers have been working on and talk about your own tinkering. We want these sessions to be relaxed and informal and to encourage members on the mailing list who maybe haven’t been to a fizzPOP event before to come along and get involved.
