What are Adelaide’s makers, creators and tinkerers doing tomorrow? They’re congregating at an old car factory, of course!
The former Mitsubishi car factory site at Tonsley is being revamped as a realm of creativity and expression on Sunday 1st November, an event otherwise known as The 2015 Adelaide Mini Maker Faire – the largest event of it’s kind in Australia!
The event promises some serious Sunday lurking action, with over 100 exhibitors including makers, inventors, designers, scientists, artists and tinkerers celebrating the idea of creativity in all it’s many forms.
With the opportunity to get out of their garden sheds and workspaces, the event offers makers of all different kinds and ages to come together and express their creative integrity. Traditional crafts such as smithing and hat making will be shown alongside some new kids on the creative block such as electric vehicles and 3D printing, promising to form a rare and interesting scene of inventions and artworks.
Attracting the attention of the media and a large selection of public speakers including Matt Boug (one of the talented prop makers from Mad Max: Fury Road) Rob and Dean (from TV’s The Curiosity Show) and Rebecca Sullivan (Dirty Girl Kitchen), the event will also be broadcasted by Ashley Walsh from 891 ABC Adelaide.
Apart from the visual creative feast this event promises, there will also be live demonstrations from artists and makers, interactive workshops, live music and food vans- all the Sunday necessities!
When: Sunday 1 November 2015, 10 am – 5 pm
Where: Tonsley, 1284 South Road, Clovelly Park
Cost: gold coin entry
