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 have 15 years of experience teaching STEAM subjects such in Mexico and Singapore. I worked Autodesk for 9 years as a Sr Learning Experience. Got involved with the Maker Movement in 2011 when I bought my first 3D Printer.
I run the Make N Play programme to provide underprivileged kids with the opportunities to explore the maker world with the charity organization Beyond Social Services. I have my own Maker studio to help the public discover their creative instinct and develop a Maker and Growth mindset helping them to move their ideas from imagination to reality.
I am a specialist educator working with children and young people to deliver KS1 - 3 curriculum content by developing and writing a bespoke curriculum based around a theme or topic of the children choice. Each club is tailored to the needs of the cohort and engages with the latest technological developments. The clubs are interactive and child lead which makes the sessions unique.
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.
I am a sculptor, detective and inventor, who makes and finds objects in order to tell stories. I enjoy making work in response to research, local folklore and childhood curiosity. My projects aim to entertain and spark the imagination of viewers of all ages, inspiring the child in all of us.
My father was a clock repairer and my uncle was a bin man so, as a 6 year old boy, I’d take things they gave me to pieces and make spaceships, rockets and robots out of the bits. Now I have a business making found object artworks (predominantly robots) and, with some of them, I use my electronic skills to give them functions such as being a light, a music player or an audio/visual sculpture. I also teach kids how to make sculptures out of WEEE (waste electrical and electronic equipment)
