Spike Badges – Sponsor in Kind

2013-07-04 17.07.37

We love our sponsors. Without them we couldn’t keep the Faire open and free for all to attend. The way we like it. We also love when companies who believe in what we are trying to do and help us run the Faire by donating stuff. Step in Spike badges , they supplied us with a load of shiny badges. Thanks guys! If you have been at any of our warm up events you will have seen them in all their glory (the picture is from the 4th of July celebrations) Look out for them on Saturday!

Open Call Extended to March 15th!

Give us your in-progress, your hacked-together, your duct-taped masses, your unfinished, your one-of-a-kind, your untitled projects.

Dublin Mini Maker Faire is joining forces with The Gathering and Dublin’s new Festival of Curiosity, and as such we’ve decided to extend the open call for projects to March 15th. So if you’ve only just head about DMMF, or if you missed the deadline, fear not– there is still time!  Apply here to be a part of Ireland’s biggest one-day festival of makers, crafters, and DIY scientists!


Talk about being on the map. Dublin Mini Maker Faire 2012 was visible FROM SPACE.

No joke – the epic day of making that was Dublin Mini Maker Faire was big, but even we didn’t know it would get picked up on Apple’s maps app.

Now we could take credit and say we launched a rocket with a camera attached and submitted the photos to Apple, or that we calculated on which day the satellites were flying overhead and scheduled the faire for that day.  Maybe it wasn’t even a satellite but rather a high-altitude plane doing photography to fill in the high-density parts of the map.  But either way, those white tents, those rightly colored seats– it’s unmistakable.

Can we promise that Dublin Mini Maker Faire on July 27th, 2013 will be immortalised on Apple’s maps again? Was it a coincidence? You’ll just have to join us to find out.  The call for makers is still open until March 1st.


Calling all Makers ! We have opened our call for this year’s Dublin Mini MakerFaire. The call is seeking all sorts of people, from the high tech to total abstract inventions. All the details of the call are available here.

If you have any questions or suggestions of who we should get leave a comment.
