The days leading up to Vancouver Mini Maker Faire can be stressful for makers. Many makers spend days locked away, missing the light of day as their projects slowly (and sometimes painstakingly!) come to fruition. So this Sunday (June 1st, 2014) we invite makers to take a day off from their projects, relax, meet awesome people, troubleshoot and celebrate maker culture!
Not a maker? That’s ok too! Come check out what people are up to and participate in some fun games and activities designed to get your gears turning.
The Love Bus will be parked nearby for your ball pit pleasure (yes, adults are allowed!), the “Fun silly-tator” will be hosting a blueprint area to brainstorm “Machines of the Future“, you can make some creepy monsters in the Creature Creation Zone. Remember to bring something to roast on the BBQ!
Bring your quadro-copters, tall bikes, homemade instruments, knitting projects, sketchbook, toys, and food! Or just bring yourself! Anything goes! Hope to see you there!
Sunday June 1st @ Dude Chilling Park (2390 Brunswick Street) from 1:00-6:00 p.m.
Rain or Shine!
My name is Zee and I am facilitating a tiny house workshop project build. Using salvaged materials, you can learn basic construction skills and the final product will be used as a tiny mobile community centre for Makers to host workshops and share skills with the community.
I love tiny spaces! Last year, along with a group of teachers and community leaders, I co-founded the MakerMobile:Workshop on Wheels, a traveling classroom, hackspace and art studio in a renovated Ford Econoline van. While working on this project, I started researching alternative mobile spaces for living and working and came across tiny houses in the process.
Do you want to learn to build a house or help this project happen?
