At Maker.ie we wear a few hats - we're educators, electronic engineers and musicians.
As well as designing unique and useful audio equipment aimed at electronic musicians (which we provide as Do It Yourself kits) we also teach musicians, artists and young people creative technologies, utilising the responsive and immediate nature of audio.
We firmly believe everyone is capable of understanding technology and learning electronics, it just needs to be presented in a format that they can relate to. Our aim is to translate the often impenetrable technical jargon into a language everyone can understand. We also strive to make learning as simple, efficient and fun as possible and this philosophy is the foundation on which our offline workshops, video tutorials and DIY kits are built on.
We are based in Dublin, Ireland and over the last 4 years we have worked directly with over 500 musicians through our workshops throughout Ireland and occasionally in the UK. We also work with students from education, cultural and outreach organisations to develop workshops that are designed to impart the independent learning skills and educational benefits that can only be realised through hands-on workshops building tangible, useful things.
Organisations that have hosted our workshops include Trinity College Dublin, Limerick IT, NUI Maynooth, The Science Gallery Dublin, NI Science Festival, CultureTECH Derry/Londonderry, The Chester Beatty Library, the Centre for Talented Youth Ireland, and NUIG and UCC students unions.
