Following the workshop there will be a special performance from The Gamepak Collective.

On Saturday come and play with our interactive wall. Create images and sound at the same time. Visitors will be invited to draw and colour on a wall of the museum and see how our music box created by Simon Kenny turns the marks made into sound. All ages welcome!

“Maker Faire is the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth—a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker movement. It’s a place where people show what they are making, and share what they are learning.
Makers range from tech enthusiasts to crafters, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, artists, science clubs, students, authors, and commercial exhibitors. They are of all ages and backgrounds. Maker Faire’s mission is to entertain, inform, connect and inspire these thousands of Makers and aspiring Makers.”
This is it on it’s first day out. We will be adding more to it over the next 2 months and slowly building our record collection!
More information about our exhibit over the next few weeks.
