Slideshow: First Benicia Mini Maker Faire


Glorious spring weather graced the first annual Benicia Mini Maker Faire (about 30 minutes north of Oakland, CA in the San Francisco Bay Area).

The lovely thing about Mini Maker Faires is how easy it is to have conversation with these always-interesting makers. The other aspect is the local community feeling: most makers I talked to lived in the surrounding Solano County area.


Congratulations to the Benicia Makerspace and Board Member Aaron Newcomb for organizing and hosting!
