UK Mini Maker Faire - The Derby Silk Mill - New Poster to Share!


Seems that the folks at Nottingham Hackspace (Nottinghack) and some new folks called Derby Makers are putting on a Mini Maker Faire bang in the middle of the UK, on Sunday the 3rd of June. We've just put up some cash to help things along and will be attending. Who's with us?

The Mini Maker will be held at the Silk Mill, which is reputed to be oldest factory in the UK, and up until recently was an industrial museum. It's still part of the museums trust and has some fantastic exhibits inside (Rolls Royce Merlin engine is my favourite!) which will be nestled alongside all manner of makers.

So are you coming? If not why not?

Right - we're off early tomorrow to try & beat the Bank Holiday traffic.

I'll try & post over the weekend if there's access to wifi, even if it's only a tweet or two (watch @KitemanX), but otherwise I'll post photos on Monday.

If you're going, come and see us on the Instructables stand, we'll have Robot stickers, and even (a few) actual fabric patches for special people...

Hello all,

Just to let you know that as the Community Team member closest to Derby, I will be representing Instructables at the Derby Mini Maker Faire.

I will have my big painted Instrutables robots, and more stickers than I know what to do with.

So do come on down and say hello.

Sunday is a bit of a sod for transport, but I'm still planning.

Any news on your commitment issues Lemonie?
I think I'm free; I've eliminated 3 events that aren't on that weekend now and I can't think of any more. Yea!

Yes, that'll be good, I don't think we've met before(?)

I've never made it to an instructables event or a maker faire before, despite being around for a while! I've been too busy putting LEDs into bags for most of the time!
As long as you're not putting LEDs up your nose or in your ears...
