York MakerFest.

National STEM Centre,

Support our work with our flexible range of one-off or recurring donations.

We're making sure everyone has access to making activities to obtain essential skills and opportunities to find new hobbies.

MakerFest has making running through its veins. With free workshops, talks and a making hall of shops, you can discover new hobbies and stock up on the goods to get making at home! It's free to attend and perfect for all ages and experiences.

We also provide valuable volunteering opportunities for people across North Yorkshire, allowing opportunities and valuable references.


An update on Coronavirus.

Due to national restrictions face-to-face events are suspended in 2021. Despite this we have plans for the future. Watch this space...
