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 enjoy experimenting with different technologies and materials from sublimation printing to LEDs. I'm a director at DoES Liverpool (a maker and co-working space in Liverpool) and love to get involved in group projects with other members of the DoES community to make something special.
I have been interested in electronics since 1974, building my first computer in 1980. I have a broad interest in anything technical or mechanical. I restarted my interest in synthesisers around 2009 and now spend a lot of time building and restoring analogue synthesisers.
I am a Maker member of DoES Liverpool and have enjoyed getting involved in a few projects with the folks in DoES, as well as sharing my knowledge and learning new skills in this excellent community.
Designer, coder and Internetologist. Designer at UK civic tech charity mySociety. Trustee at the Liverpool chapter of the Awesome Foundation. Co-founder of Liverpool Code Club. OII and Goldsmiths alumnus. Bass ukulele player.
I am an architect based in London. I was born in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia (my hometown). I am a partner of Studio Bound, a research led design practice based between London and the Gulf. We endeavour to bridge our research ethos with our design practice.
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.
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.
I have been coming to DoES for 6 months. The defence dress has been my biggest collaboration project here, as I hope to continue to contribute to future projects, both my own and group projects. I enjoy building and taking apart computers, radios and anything electronic. I like to impart positive attitude onto others.
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 modeling 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 better products for different applications.
I like to make things that help with managing aquaponics systems and/or look beautiful. I work with Access Space, Sheffield University, Heeley City Farm and others from Sheffield and beyond!
Programmer, car enthusiast, engineering geek. If it's got mechanical or electrical parts, you'll probably find me taking it apart. Been making stuff since I was a youngster. I also help run the Hackburn hackspace in Blackburn.
