The 4th annual Vancouver Mini Maker Faire is quickly approaching, taking place next weekend, on June 7 and 8 at the PNE Forum. It’s going to be action-packed and filled with maker spirit! If you live in the Pacific Northwest, in BC, or in Canada, make the journey and come celebrate the joy of making with us nice Canadians!

Aspiring makers of all ages can get even more hands-on at the Faire’s first curated workshop series, offering puppet-making, letterpress, Arduino, knot-work bracelets, Lego, the list goes on! What’s more, this year’s Speakers Series includes experts on 3D printing, sustainable fashion, making money, green building, electronic music production, graffiti knitting, collaborative projects, and more!
