Mini Maker Faire, billed as ‘the world’s largest show (and tell) festival’, is a family-friendly feast of invention, creativity and resourcefulness celebrating the Maker movement – a kind of ‘DIY culture 2.0’, comprising crafters, technology enthusiasts and artists. Founded in California in 2006, it has since inspired hundreds of independent, community-driven Mini Maker Faires all over the world. Following the success of FutureEverything’s recent Handmade event at Victoria Baths, which featured knitted QR codes, lazer cut ‘bendy wood’ and a giant game of Operation, Manchester Mini Maker Faire brings together makers of all ages and backgrounds to show off their inventions and creations – from electronic gizmos and homemade clothes, to robotic toys and multimedia artworks.
