Who are makers? We are all makers! Makers range from tech enthusiasts to crafters, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, artists, science clubs, students, authors, and commercial exhibitors. Speaking about the faire, co-organiser Laura Tobin said “makers are of all ages and backgrounds, coming from all over Ireland and beyond, and our 2013 faire will be even bigger and better than last year. At the first Dublin Mini Maker Faire, exhibitors ranged from roboticists to crochet clubs and 3D printers, and nearly everything in between”.
