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?

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.
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.
I am an engineer and now work at a company leading the engineering to create custom fit 3D printed footwear!
Access Space is an arts and education charity with a maker space called Refab Space (which we opened in 2012). We're based in central Sheffield, close to the rail and bus stations.
People interested in art, design, computers, recycling, music, electronics, photography and more, meet like-minded people, share and develop skills and work on creative, enterprising and technical projects. The makers for this challenge are John Moseley, Toni Buckby, Gareth Coleman, Jake Harries and Rachael Hand.
I've loved making things since I was a kid, which led to me studying electrical engineering and having all kinds of "maker" related hobbies, from 3D printing and electronics to glass work. Professionally, I spread my love of science & engineering through Let's Talk Science's outreach program. I love sharing my passion for understanding how things work and creating new inventions with kids across Canada, and giving other volunteers the tools they need to share their passion too!

CS Sets is a family business full of creative people. Set up by Chris and Heather who have between them clocked up over 30 years of theatre and events; We have done everything from make it rain on stage to making a theatre for 200 people in a week. We love bringing exciting and utterly bonkers ideas to life. We find the work of the world's Little Inventors truly inspiring and believe that without inventors the world would be a very boring place.
