The woolly umbrella group is knitting a map of Brighton & Hove.

Balls of pale pastel coloured wools, to represent the earth, dense rows of houses and field, sit waiting in wicker baskets. Women of all ages knit silently, meditative.

The organiser, Sue Craig, says she has no no idea how long it will take to complete the project. The bayeaux tapestry comes to mind.

Sarah Lewis has stopped to learn how to knit. Video of her first time to follow!

Nomadic sound system boast a scary display of their marching band soundsystem. Each piece plays a different part of a marching band.

They're doing a performance (I'm in it) at 8pm outside Brighton Dome and matching around the streets.

Here's my mate Evil Ben standing next to the bass drum.

Brighton mini maker faire -part 1

First stop, Bristol hack space who showed me how to tweet on a really old computer called twitbeeb (i thought it was a typewriter!). It was great to watch peoples reaction to the 30 year old computer- a middle aged man and a young man both shared the eureka moment over the same model.

I also learned about a printer that makes paper cut outs. And realised that I knew the guy demonstrating from about 10 years ago!

The Corn Exchange is heaving. Amazing.
