Accepted to Maker Faire UK

UK-MMF-1We are ecstatic to have been accepted to this year’s Maker Faire UK. The event takes place in Newcastle on Saturday / Sunday  27th/ 28th of April. This event back in 2011 got many of us in TOG interested in Maker Faires. It inspired us to go on and showcase our projects at two other Maker Faires,  Dublin and New York. We are looking forward to our 3rd.

Is anyone else from Ireland a maker at this faire or going ? Leave us a comment.
