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 Siôn and I love to draw and make things out of cardboard. I especially like to make fun things like cardboard pinball machines and monster detectors!
As an illustrator I get to draw as my job, this is something I wanted for as long as I can remember so I feel very lucky that it has happened. I also like to help others to draw and make too because the more the merrier as far as I'm concerned!
Hello! I am a product designer and Fab Lab technician. I make home and gift ware at my product design company, J Jacob Designs, where I use both traditional craft and modern design.

Hello My name is Nicola from @Peg Creations. I am a artist who uses sustainable material to create a number of products and art. I also write and deliver creative workshops at events and festivals.
I make things, or think about making things all the time. I have always been like this so I went to art college. I trained to be a graphic designer. Since then I have designed all sorts of things, patterns for children's clothes, hats, logos and children's wallpaper. I enjoy having a job that is doing what I like. In my free time I make all sorts of things and if I'm bored I do some origami.
