MOSI Mini Maker Faire

On the weekend of the 28th and 29th July 2012, the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester held a Mini Maker Faire. This curiously-titled event seemed to be a celebration of things people can do, from hand-making paper to Samba dancing and from building a model railway to building an electronic flashing brooch.

I was there on the Saturday, as Operating Officer for the railway (operating a steam railway is something you can do!) and we were quite busy. The booked driver, Stuart, generously shared the driving with me but I also managed to grab a few pictures of some of the activities which are here.
