  1. I am 15 years old and from Newcastle! I would love to be one of the friendly faces of Maker Fairer, introducing people to the event. I am very confident, outgoing and friendly. I have also had experience working in a cafe so I would feel very comfortable doing the job :)

  2. Hi,

    We’d be happy to do some launch promotion on Makerflux. We’re planning to come up again for the weekend to promote the event and interview makers.

    Please feel free to get in touch if you have something we can shout out.
