Hey, I’m in the middle of a massive round of button-cookie production but wanted to quickly pass on a Maker Faire update — applications are due this coming Tuesday (3/31) and if you’re interested, you should definitely jump on it!
I’m applying to teach some button and bead projects — I had the best time at MF 07 (missed 08 due to imminent baby arrival) and I am looking forward to 09! Andrew has never gotten to go so we’re planning to make a vacation of it. Yay!
from the CRAFT: blog:
There is still time to get your entries in to be a crafty Maker at Maker Faire Bay Area. The ultimate DIY weekend is May 30 and 31 in San Mateo, California, and this year’s Faire is celebrating President Obama’s call for all of us to participate in remaking America. We’re looking to showcase “the risk-takers, the doers, the makers of things.”
Here are the details on submitting your entries.
The first step to participating in Maker Faire is to submit an entry that tells us about yourself and your project. Entries can be submitted from individuals as well as from groups such as hobbyist clubs and schools. Please provide a short description of what you make and what you will actually bring to Maker Faire. Please link to photographs or videos of what you make. Maker exhibits should be non-commercial. We particularly encourage exhibits that are interactive and that highlight the process of making things.
Application Form: Please fill out the entry form to tell us about your project.
We are also looking for Makers with projects in the following categories:
– Alternative Energy
– Clean Tech and Green Tech
– Community and Group Based Projects
– Lost Crafts
– Artisanal Food Makers
– Student Projects
– and more….
