Crazy Cases - What A Hoot!

'Crazy Cases' kicked off the new series of Maker Fun Events earlier today. Some fabulous designs. This one before we added some LEDs to brighten owl's night sky!  It was a tricky session sewing with conductive thread and sharp needles! Did you know dads can sew too. Look out for the high-lights on the next Maker Fun video coming soon.    

Want to join in the fun? Come to our events:

This design reminds me of that cute Pixar animation called 'For the Birds' (2000).

Workshop Tasters - So you think you know about dragons!

Coming Soon... 

Session: Dragon Training School

Could you spot a mood dragon from a stink dragon or a glow dragon? We will smell, squeeze and stretch dragon snot and slime to find out which dragon it came from.
Then you will create your own dragon slime and design a new daring dragon!

Maker Fun is Going to Maker Faire, April 26th & 27th Newcastle 2014

I'm really excited to announce that Maker Fun is going to have a stand at Maker Faire UK, we are going to be running drop-in workshops and telling everyone about our fabulous maker sessions that we run in Marple Library. 
I went last year as a visitor and saw so many exciting things; fire breathing dragons, dancing storm troopers and a crazy bio tech tongue survey. 
Hosted by the Centre for Life in Newcastle it's a great family event. Book your tickets early and join in the Maker Fun.
