Makers range from tech enthusiasts to crafters to hobbyists to scientists to engineers to garage and shed tinkerers. They are of all ages and backgrounds.

Our aim is to capture stories from the changing face of manufacturing industry and to recognise and support the tinkerers, inventors and makers who are bringing manufacturing back to life from the grass-roots.

We need your help to capture modern memories of stories from industries in the world today – before they are lost forever. We want conversations to happen, voices to be heard, memories to be captured and we think Maker Voices can help to do that.
