Getting ready for Maker Faires

Elsie Kemp

Thank you to everyone who came along to the Illuminating Geometry workshops at the Scottish Parliament. We had a great time.Here is a photo of  Elsie Kemp with a beautiful dodecahedron that she made in comitee room three with us. I really liked the fact that we held the workshops in the commitee rooms. It made it feel that the building really belonged to the people.  Thanks to Toni Hamill and Hannah Ayre who helped me run the workshops too. I couldn’t have done it without you.

The next event for Illuminating Geometry is Edinburgh Mini Maker Faire. It is on Sunday the 19th of April starting at 10 am. Have a look at their website to buy tickets and  find out more. On Saturday the 18th, I’ll be at the National Museum of Scotland from 11-2.30 with some other makers to promote Maker Faire.

The following weekend is Maker Faire UK at the Centre for Life in Newcastle. It is two days the 25th and 26th of April. Here is their website to find out more

We have changed the design of the mini lanterns this year, they a re larger than last year and the participant can chose different colours of tissue paper to put in the lantern.

Well best stop chatting and better start counting LEDs to make sure we have enough for all these events.

    Hi Jenny,
    I saw you yesterday and was interested in making some of your lanterns with patients and families that I work with as part of ‘Room for You’ ( see website). You said you might be able to supply papers etc. but can’t see where here on this site. Can you help?
    Best wishes
