In the lead up to Dublin Mini Maker Faire, let’s meet some of the great makers who will be at the faire:
We promised there’d be lasers, and Husband and wife team Fiona Snow and Michael Mohler balance a love for accuracy and precision with a creative “flair” to make some amazing laser-cut products.
Since 2011, SNOW have been lasering away, using a 40 watt Epilog Laser Cutter to create many of their products.
This cutting edge machine has a working area of 600 x 300 mm and can cut and score a very wide range of materials from paper, plastics, wood and much more. Here are some examples of the setup and sample projects:
Becoming a sponsor of Dublin Mini Maker Faire is a great way for your company or organization to get involved with this exciting and enriching community, all-ages event in its inaugural year.
Why is Dublin Mini Maker Faire so great?
It’s a chance for us, as makers, to give back to the community through this inspirational event that invites people to join in.
The faire will connect people and projects within their local community and beyond.
A diverse array of projects will help inspire and empower young people to learn more about and pursue careers in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).
It’s a CSR opportunity like no other, and we hope to establish this event as a yearly one, which will bring together over 40 exhibiting makers and workshop leaders, 50 volunteers, and an estimated 3000+ attendees.
There is no other event like it! Where else would you get flame-thrower drum kits, exercise-powered Scalectrix, 14ft drums, Irish speaking robots, crochet, and period costume all in one place?
Sponsorship benefits will range from text mention and logo inclusion in written material supporting the event, to having exhibit space in featured locations at the event. Please see the attached levels for more information.
We had dozens of fabulous projects, products, performances, and demos proposed! We’ll be getting back to everybody by Mid-April. In the mean time, if you have another brilliant idea, or want to get involved with Dublin’s Mini Maker Faire, just email email@example.com .
Thank you to everyone who submitted projects, performances, workshops and more in our open call for makers! Due to a couple last-minute requests for some extra time, we’ll consider submissions that got in on time first, but we will be accepting submissions up until midnight Thursday March 22nd. So if you only just heard about the call for makers, or missed the deadline, you have a little extra time to get your idea in! Any questions? Just email firstname.lastname@example.org.
