York MakerFest Spirit?

Our charity of the year for 2020 & 2021 is...

St Leonard's Hospice 35 Anniversary brand

We hope to see you join us in raising cash for this amazing local charity!

Don't stay a beginner. Learn new skills and build on them!

Work on your skills, and don’t worry if you find you don’t like particular types of making, not everyone does! York MakerFest is the place to try everything!
