Maker Profile: Tom Newsom


Tom Newsom found out about Elephant & Castle Mini Maker Faire through the Brixton Tinkerspace a new hackspace in South London. The project he will be presenting is Glownimals, they are battery-powered glowing 3D wire-frame animal head masks that are made out of old bicycle helmets, coat hangers, cable ties, gaffa tape, elastic bands and electroluminescent wire.

As you can see above he has created a Lion, Eagle, Wolf, T-Rex, and an Elephant and he says the deadline of the Maker Faire will push him to finish an Owl, Skull and Dragon.

Tom will be exhibiting with other members of the Brixton Tinkerspace.
