National STEM Centre York

York MakerFest is a free event for everyone, allowing all to learn and share skills to make amazing projects and an amazing community. 

An event for all ages, all experiences and everyone who wants to try something new.

Welcome to York MakerFest

At York MakerFest we are dedicated to providing a free event for both children and adults to learn new making skills and for makers to share their skills.

So whether you’re a beginner, or a pro, come on down and have a go at something new – you never know, you might just make it your new hobby!


Free Making.

Make what you want, and attend the event for free. Very tempting! Come on down to York MakerFest, learn new skills and make new projects. Plus, you could be leaving the event attending a new making club you didn’t know about!

Our charity of the year for 2020 is...

St Leonard's Hospice

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!
