Newcastle upon Tyne through to South Shields
Newcastle upon Tyne, England

Maker Faire is part of ScienceFest – a 10 day celebration of creativity and innovation across Newcastle.

Following the outstanding success of the first UK Maker Faire which was attended by over 7000 visitors, we are thrilled to announce Maker Faire 2010! Once again, Maker Faire will be heading to North East England as part of the Newcastle ScienceFest - a 10 day festival celebrating creativity and innovation.

New to Maker Faire? Maker Faire celebrates things people create themselves -- from James Bond-worthy electronic gizmos to homemade clothes. Inspiration is ubiquitous at the festival and there are surprises around every corner for people of all ages.

"We want people to experience more than just a weekend of creative entertainment, we want them to leave feeling inspired -- that they too can create things, express themselves, and engage the world around them. Our goal is to resuscitate the spirit of creativity and innovation." - Sherry Huss, Event Director

At Maker Faire, technology meets art, science meets fashion, engineering meets crafting and that's just the tip of the iceberg. This DIY festival features cool robots, clever gadgets, garden shed inventions, knitted wonders, renegade fashions, cars and bikes like you've never seen before, the occasional fireball, music-making and much, much more!
