Another Successful Dublin Maker

Well we survived another Dublin Maker. It was a great day. Once again our stand, props and gadgets were mobbed. Our time machine told so many futures, that we ran out of paper. We ran out of straws for our skull radio and had to get more at lunchtime. Our duck shoot game was in action all day. If you’d like to know more about us or to visit, get in touch with us using the contact form above.

It’s almost T-0

It’s almost time up. DublinMaker is upon us. The lights might be burning late in Blackpitts tonight, as our members finish the last of our projects and props. No matter how late we stay up tonight however, we’ll be in Merrion Square tomorrow, so be sure to drop by our stand.

TOG July Open Social

Our July Open Social evening takes place on Saturday 15th July from 7PM. Expect lots of chat and panic about Dublin Maker, which will be just 1 week away.

If you’ve never been to our Social, you’ll find it a great alternative Saturday evening in town. Come in and look around. If you’ve never been in before, we’ll give you the grand tour of the space. Talk to members and visitors about projects or things you’d like to do. If you like what you see, ask about joining as a full member. Hopefully there’ll be caint, ceol agus craic as usual. The space stays open until the last member is left……usually the small hours of Sunday morning.

Our Open Socials are always free to attend for both members and visitors alike. No need to book…. just turn up. You can drop in for 10 minutes, or stay the whole night. We have parking available. Bring beer, food, gadgets! Our doors are open from 7PM. Hope to see you there.

Dublin Maker 2017

As the website says…. See you 22nd July. No Tickets. Just come. Merrion Square. It is a rectangle, but don’t let that worry you……. Yes it’s Dublin Maker again and TOG will be there. It’s not long to go now. Less than a month. We’re  busy panicking about what to bring and will it be ready on time. Be sure to drop by our stand.


From the Dublin Maker website…. “Dublin Maker is a free to attend, community run event, which will be held on Saturday July 22nd, 2017 in Merrion Square, Dublin. Dublin Maker takes the form of a “show and tell” experience where inventors/makers sourced through an open call, will have an opportunity to showcase their creations at individual booths in a carnival atmosphere. It is a family friendly showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the maker movement. It’s a place where people show what they are making and share what they are learning. Makers range from tech enthusiasts to crafters, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, artists, science clubs, students, authors and commercial exhibitors. They are of all ages and backgrounds, coming from all over Ireland and beyond. Dublin Maker’s mission is to entertain, inform and connect the makers of Ireland, while inspiring the next generation of Ireland’s makers and inventors.”
