Alison Makerfaire

Hi Crafters! We are holidng two open auditions for Maker Faire. One in LA on Sunday, February 18 at Machine Project (1200 D North Alvarado Street, Los Angeles, CA 213-483-8761) from 1-4pm. MAKE and CRAFT editors Dale Dougherty, Mark Frauenfelder and Carla Sinclair will be there.

Our second audition is in Menlo Park at TechShop (120 Independence Dr, Menlo Park, CA 800-640-1975). We are doing auditions to make it easy for makers to show us their work. MAKE and CRAFT editors Dale Dougherty, David Pescovitz and Natalie Zee Drieu will be there.

You can think of these auditions as more like Dorkbot meetings. Anyone is welcome to come watch. We ask Makers to go up in front of the audience and present their project in under 10 minutes. This will be a fun, friendly and supportive event.

If you are planning to come audition, please contact Natalie Villalobos at [email protected]. Come show us what you love to make.

The Maker Faire is May 19-20 at the San Mateo County Fairgrounds in San Mateo, CA and will also be held on October 20-21 in Austin, TX.

Crafters don’t forget we are accepting proposals now for craft workshops at the Maker Faire. The deadline for proposals is Feb 27, 2007 at Midnight (PST). Read more about it here. Link.
