I was through in edinburgh for the Mini Maker Faire with Hannah and Martin.  Together we did the ‘Rapid Protobike’ workshop.  The challenge was to make a bike in a few hours using scrap wood,  Martins thermosetting plastic and Hannah’s pedal power sewing machine.  Great fun and it was great to get lots of people involved making stuff!
