Enjoy a fun day of invention and creativity on the Clyde!
Glasgow Mini Maker Faire is a gathering of fascinating, curious people who enjoy learning and who love sharing what they can do. From engineers to artists to scientists to crafters, Maker Faire is a venue for these “makers” to show hobbies, experiments, projects.
We call it the Greatest Show (& Tell) on Earth—a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity, and resourcefulness.
Glasgow Mini Maker Faire will take place on Sunday, July 29th at the Tall Ship at Riverside, Glasgow.
Attendance is Free! Why sign up for a ticket?
