We are helping out at the Big Day Out again this year at the Dublin Mini Maker Faire Area. We will be showing off show projects and running a learn to solder area, also on the stand there will also be some cool 3D printing demos from 3D Dave. The event runs from 12pm until 6pm on Saturday 16th of March in Merrion Square. If your in the area drop into us.
We 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.
We are delighted that two of our members have been accepted to showcase their projects at next months World Maker Faire. Jeffrey and Robert will be bringing along projects they have worked on and a duck or two.
World Maker Faire is very like our own Dublin Mini Maker Faire but on steroids with over 500 makers. It takes place on the 29th & 30th of September in New York. If you in the area drop by and say hello.
Did you see us at the first Dublin Mini Maker Faire in Trinity on Saturday? We had a blast! We’ll have a round-up of the day itself, and the bbq we had next day in a future post. But first, let’s talk about the projects we made especially for Maker Faire!
A call went out among the TOG fullmember mailing list; to make new projects for Maker Faire. We noble crafters stepped up to the plate and came up with the idea of Constellation Quilts! After several weeks of prototyping and experimentation, and only one week left before the Faire, we got started in earnest.
All preparations are under way for this weekend’s Dublin Mini Makerfaire. One of our members put it best “
@TOG_Dublin getting all their ducks in a row in preparation for MakerFaire!” For the makerfaire we have designed some new TOG t-shirts that will be available on the day. Do drop by our stand.
