Meet our Magnificent Makers
Little Inventors wants children to open their eyes to the world of invention and creativity. But beyond the invention drawings, there is a unique opportunity for children and makers, designers and artists to come together and collaborate to bring children’s imagination to life.
By taking children’s ideas seriously and presenting them in a professional manner through collaboration with skilled makers, we will help showcase children’s original ideas, perspectives and voices.
We also want to challenge the skills and experience of adult makers, and encourage them to push beyond their own limits by engaging with the highly imaginative and unhindered minds of young children.Do you make things?
Join the fun!
Carl has an interest in a broad range of design areas and has worked for a number of years teaching on various Animation and Design programmes at the University of Sunderland.
Working from my own studio and gallery , I create a variety of unique pottery figurines and collectibles, both functional and decorative as well as throwing pots on the potter's wheel.
I love a challenge. Commissions most welcome.
A sculptor based in Durham Alan has a wide experience of technical theatre and has been building sets and making props for many years. He also teaches scuba diving.
If it's electrical, bleepy and blinky, I'm interested... and I've probably got something you'd like on my shelf of abandoned projects.
I also like chopping wood and welding metal.
I have always been quite creative as a child, painting, ceramics, sculptures, and later furniture in cardboard. I use my personal experiences, countries where I have lived, colors, sceneries, design which will influence my inspiration and I then implement all of these in my creative work.
Since the age of five, I have been interested and fascinated with dismantling things to understand the working principle of their mechanisms. This curiosity led me to follow modules at school, college and now at University level that involved electronics, 3D modelling and mechanics.
At the moment I am doing a Mechatronics and Robotics degree which links very nicely with what I enjoy doing “thinking outside the box” to solve problems that are already there or to simply make products better for different applications.
Programmer, car enthusiast, engineering geek. Been making stuff since I was a youngster. I help run the Hackburn hackspace in Blackburn.
I'm a freelance designer and illustrator based in Liverpool. I love using bold and bright colours and details to create fun and whimsical visuals. When I'm not illustrating, I'm a UI/UX mobile designer designing apps and digital products.
I run a makerspace called Machines Room and i'm Chief Maker at Little Inventors!
I studied art, and love design. I do lots of DIY, fixing and helping others make things.
Halifax Makerspace is a non-profit group of people who love to make with a variety of materials and skills. We support each other in our individual projects, participate in group community builds and offer free electronics workshops.
