Yeah, you’re dead right. More activities than you can angrily shake a hot glue gun at… and for a great reason. The DIY spirit is rising sky high and more vibrant than ever before.

We’re not going to tell you what to pay attention to, because if you’re clever you can use everything you learn at Maker for a great costume idea. Personally, I’ll be waiting to see what emerges from the whole event. We’ll be covering Maker with as much detail as possible from a remote location. If you have any pictures or stories to share, email us and we’ll put em up!
