This weeks Family Makers was “Vortex Cannons”, using these videos as inspiration:

Interesting to see the different types of design. We then set about making our own versions. Here are photos/videos of some of the creations:


Family Makers runs every Tuesday @ 11am to help with homeschool making/D&T (or as a break from homeschooling?!). The basic format is:

  • Presentation of the task/inspiration for the session
  • Making time – everyone work on your project!
  • Show and Tell

The next one is now up on meetup, so you can sign up here:

The challenge will be suitable for any age as the task will aim to be fairly open/flexible, and it is family making (not childcare!) so everyone can get stuck in and help.

This is open to anyone, not just Makespace members. Please signup if you might join, and pass it on…

Family Makers – Vortex Cannons!
