Maker Applications as of Today

Thanks again for those that have applied! If you are interested in becoming a Maker and haven’t applied yet, our deadline for Calls for Makers will be on March 17th. In order to properly accommodate your needs we ask that you officially apply to our Call for Makers.

Please note that if you can only exhibit for one day or for a couple of hours either day, we would still love to have you. If you want to participate but can’t make the March 17th deadline, or if you have any questions/concerns whatsoever, please contact makers@makerfaire.ca.

In the meantime, check out a breakdown of some of the projects we’ve received below:







A Successful Makers Meeting!

.

Thanks to those that came out! We had such a great turn-out despite torrential weather conditions. It was great to chat more about your projects, and to learn more about what people are making in Vancouver. We’ve had some great submissions so far and look forward to meeting again! I can’t wait to start posting about some of the submissions we’ve received, there are so many talented individuals out there working on such great projects!

.

If you’re interested in exhibiting any of your work, please submit your application, our call for Makers will be open until March 17th. We want to hear from you! (c’mon crafters! You too!)
