Maker Faire UK is the greatest show and tell on Earth! Taking place on Saturday 28 – Sunday 29 April 2018 at Life Science Centre in Newcastle, it’s a two-day family-friendly festival of invention and creativity.
It brings together over 300 hackers, crafters, coders, DIYers and garden shed inventors from across the globe. People who love to make stuff and who want to share their passion with the public.
It’s really great fun for adults and kids alike, with all sorts of different things to try your hand at from traditional crafts to hi-tech hacks. The atmosphere is one of collaboration, sharing and experimenting, where you’ll try new things, deepen existing knowledge and have loads of fun! Be prepared to be inspired. Don’t be afraid to get stuck in!
See examples of handcrafted leather goods and have a go at this traditional skill with Evancliffe Leathercraft. We’ll guide you through a Leather Stamping Workshop*, where you can use the provided stamps to create your own unique leather wristband, keyring, bookmark or other shape, which can then be dyed a colour of your choice.
*A small additional charge applies for this activity.
