Medway Makers: people
f l


Loading I found out about the maker movement when I saw a copy of Make Magazine in Foyles bookshop. It was all in San Francisco! Then I visited the Brighton Maker Faire and decided I had to have "maker" culture in Medway now, so the next day 8 September 2013, instead of going to live in San Francisco I founded Medway makers.

I have to audiences about "maker culture" at the Xi'an International Maker Faire in China and a the Westminster Higher Education Forum in Whitehall London.
