What is a Maker Faire?

Maker Faire is a gathering of fascinating, curious people who enjoy learning and who love sharing what they can do. From engineers to artists to scientists and crafters, Maker Faire is a venue for these “makers” to show hobbies, experiments, projects.


We call it the Greatest Show (& Tell) on Earth – a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity, and resourcefulness.

Maker Faires at Monash


The first Monash-based Maker Faire was first held in December 2019 — Monash Mini Maker Faire — attracting 54 maker groups and 3,500 attendees from across Victoria.


The Monash Maker Faire 2022 is brought to you by Monash Tech School in partnership with The City of Monash, and with the support of Monash University. This second Maker Faire aims to bring together even more makers and attendees in celebration of creativity and technology.


Why attend?


For families and curious minds, come and be amazed by the talents of the exhibitors, and get involved with the hands-on activities. It’s also a brilliant opportunity for Makers to share their creations, learn from each other, and meet like-minded innovators.


Why at Monash?


The Monash Precinct is home to the Monash medical research precinct, the Australian Synchrotron, CSIRO, and the main campus of Australia’s largest university, Monash University. The Monash community has a rich artistic heritage, with the Monash Gallery of Art now known as the home of Australian Photography.


As such, Monash is home to an extensive and diverse community of makers, from crafters and artisans to scientists and tech-savvy creators and everything in between.
