Adding to the anachronistic blend of awesomeness that is the Tampa Bay Mini Maker Faire, we welcome the Tampa Bay Treblemakers ! The Treblemakers is an Irish dance troupe made up of championship Irish dancers who have performed onstage with The Irish Tenors, The Chieftans, Andy Cooney, Michael Londra and Celt. They have also been featured in a Modell Sporting Goods commercial and have danced at local venues and festivals like the Dunedin Military Tattoo and the Bay Area Renaissance Festival.
And now, at the Tampa Bay Mini Maker Faire!
At least some of them – More are coming on board in the next couple of days, bringing a rich variety of science, art, craft, engineering , music, food, and more, showcasing and celebrating the inventive spirit and the amazing work of all kinds of makers across Tampa Bay and beyond.
The great folks listed here are bringing art, music, robots, games, puzzles, inventions, ham radio, crafts, trades, jewelry, electronic gadgets and gizmos and much, much more for everyone to experience and enjoy!

Our inaugural Tampa Bay Mini Maker Faire 2012 was a resounding success, with over 300 people enjoying over 20 Maker exhibits indoors and out – at least until some torrential Florida spring rains came, driving everyone indoors – where the party continued right up until closing time!
There were robots to drive, custom chess pieces to make, duct tape and paper crafts to create, patent searches to, cool inventors to talk with, 3D printers to marvel at, great art, great food, and great people to share it all with!
Many, many thanks to all the great volunteers who helped make our event so successful, from the great FTC Team Duct Tape family that staffed our registration table all day to the wonderful University Area Community Development Corporation volunteers who helped guests and Makers and aided in the smooth and swift movement of Makers from the patio to the gym when the skies opened up. It all went so smoothly, no one missed a beat in activities or fun!
We’ll share more photos and stories soon. And you can find more on our Facebook page, too.

Maker line-up and schedules subject to change.
We first met Elizabeth Baker at TEDxYouth@TampaBay 2011, where she gave a mesmerizing performance utilizing a variety of electronic media. A classically trained musician, she draws influences from everyday events and personal experience, and uses her compositions as a means of expressing a myriad of emotions and ideals. She currently performs around the state and country in a solo electronic project under the pseudonym Suitcases of Sound.
We’re delighted that Ms. Baker is bringing her innovative music to Tampa Bay Mini Maker Faire, and we’re pretty sure that if you’ve never heard Elizabeth Baker perform, you’ve probably never heard anything quite like the music she makes!
