Brighton Mini Maker Faire 2014

The Mini Maker Faire was packed with enthusiastic visitors of all ages encouraged by a robot roaming around the Faire and streets nearby.

You could buy copies of Hot Glue at a stand in the main hall. It’s full of projects helping you to get started making at home.

Good advice from Andrew Sleigh,  Editor of Hot Glue:

‘So wherever you make, make a mess, try things you don’t understand, enjoy your mistakes, and once in a while, step back to enjoy your creations’
