After an intense (and longer than expected – sorry) phase sorting through applicants and choosing the best, the time has finally come to announce the makers who’ll be appearing at the first ever Brighton Mini Maker Faire on 3rd September. It’s been quite a challenge deciding from so many great submissions and we’re super-thrilled at the quality and range of people who’ve wanted to be involved.

With musical mechanical hats, Japanese craft oddities, a giant Etch-a-Sketch, wind powered sculptures, self-balancing two wheeled skateboards, Arduino submarines and much, much more, it looks set to be an eye-poppingly inspirational, educational and down-right fun-packed event. Whether you think you’re into crafts and gadgetry or not, come to Maker Faire with an open mind and you will come away amazed. Here are a few snaps from some of our makers to whet your appetite:
