Eureka! The National Children’s Museum in Halifax, West Yorkshire is hosting Yorkshire’s only official Mini Maker Faire for the second year running on Saturday 30 and Sunday 31 May. Visitors will get to meet inventors, artists, crafters and creatives and see some of the amazing things that you can make using your imagination and a bit of know-how, plus, you’ll get the chance to have a go yourself!
Halifax Mini Maker Faire will welcome a selection of inventors and creators from across the UK. Visitors will get the chance to check out laser cutting with the team from Just Add Sharks, explore hydraulic systems, gears and mechanisms with Small Machines, find out what happens to old toys with the Toy Hacker, plus see creations from the amazing makers at oomlout, York Hackspace, Leeds Hackspace, Sheffield Hackers and Makers and much, much more.
