Tea’sing the crowd at Bristol Mini Maker Faire14th April 2013
Illuminarium’s Big Tea’se exhibited at Mshed Bristol for Bristol Mini Maker Faire. We were delighted to be part of the proceedings and chuffed to bring a fire element to the first Maker Faire in Bristol. The Big Tea’se didn’t see much auto auction as we had people lining up to interact with the sculpture by playing the spoon keyboard to make fire.
Maker Faire is a family friendly event celebrating arts, crafts, engineering, geekery and showcases all kinds of incredible projects. Maker Faire is a place where people show what they are making, and share what they are learning. Makers range from tech enthusiasts to crafters to homesteaders to scientists to garage tinkerers of all ages and backgrounds. The aim of Maker Faire is to entertain, inform, connect and grow the do it yourself (diy) maker community.
