Welcome to our new look website. Since it’s brand new (just like our event), there may be a few issues. We will work to resolve these.

Celebrating Making In York.

We’re planning a free event celebrating all makers in York and allowing people to find new clubs and learn new skills.

Community To Community.

When you’re at York MakerFest you will be talking to other organisations and clubs within York and the neighbouring places so you can learn skills and know you can continue these skills in the near future.

There's a maker within... you!

That is why our MakerFest’s will be free, to allow everyone (yes everyone) to come and have a go at something new.

From the York Pi Jam Team

York Pi Jam run free digital making activities for children and adults in York. They also were finalists for the Best Event category in the Minster FM Listener Choice Awards 2018.

Perfect Your Skills

Let’s put this into perspective. Let’s say you want to solder a circuit board for a cool project you’ve been planning. No matter how many times you try or how many YouTube videos you watch, you just can’t solder without burning yourself (ouch!).

Then you come to York MakerFest. You meet the lovely people there and you get tips for your soldering. You also have a look around and find loads of other things you like to do and want to have a go at.

Why York MakerFest?

  • It's free!
  • Run by York Pi Jam, they're super nice!
  • Learn new skills!
  • Did I mention it's free?
