Makers Central 2023: A Shocking Experience!

Makers Central 2023 was a truly remarkable event that brought together a diverse community of makers, enthusiasts, and creative minds. We were thrilled to participate in the show once again. The event showcased the power of collaboration, the excitement of innovation, and the joy of sharing our passion for making.

One of the highlights of Makers Central 2023 was the opportunity to connect with incredibly talented makers from various disciplines. Woodworkers, metalworkers, 3D printing enthusiasts, and DIY enthusiasts gathered under one roof, inspiring one another with their projects and techniques. Engaging in conversations and witnessing the remarkable craftsmanship was both humbling and invigorating. The sense of camaraderie and support within the maker community was truly uplifting, motivating us to push the boundaries of our own creativity.

The Main Attraction!

At the heart of our exhibition was our spectacular Scalextric track using some custom size Shadow Foam. The track not only entertained the attendees but also served as a conversation starter, allowing us to introduce the benefits and versatility of Shadow Foam to a wider audience. The enthusiasm and positive feedback we received were overwhelming. Seeing the excitement on the faces of participants as they raced their cars around the track was truly gratifying.

From woodworking and blacksmithing to electronics and robotics, there was something for every maker to explore and learn. These sessions enriched the skills and knowledge of participants, empowering them to further pursue their creative endeavours.

The event also offered a unique opportunity for leading brands and manufacturers to showcase their latest tools and technologies. Cutting-edge 3D printers, CNC machines, power tools, and precision instruments were on display, demonstrating the relentless progress in the world of making. Among these innovations, Shadow Foam proudly presented our range of foam inserts, designed to protect and organize tools efficiently. The positive reception reaffirmed the value of our product in the maker community.

Makers Central 2023 was not just about the exhibits and workshops; it was about fostering connections and collaborations.
