Make Play Day
Location: Oak HallThe goal of Make Magazine is to help YOU make things, so after wandering around the Maker Faire and getting inspired by all the creative projects you see and creative people you meet, come on over to the Make Play Day all-day workshop and be creative yourself.
I specialize in helping people who don't yet realize that they too are capable of making things. I will provide electronics, construction materials, and assistance to help turn that creative doodle in your head into something physical.
Drop in for as long as you want and have fun. This workshop is open both days of the faire during regular faire hours.
