Vancouver Mini Maker Faire 2013
This year I had the pleasure of attending the Vancouver Mini Maker Faire held at the PNE Forum. It was so great to see this small faire in its second year, and all the excited and enthusiastic people wandering around, learning about robotics, crafting, crazy musical instruments, and so much more. Here are a few of the highlights of the faire. Enjoy!
Blim was a returning exhibitor who set up a Print Your Own Shirt Station. They provided the materials, and for a fee of $30, you could print your own American Apparel t-shirt. Here we have a soon to be satisfied customer applying paint to the screen with assistance and direction from the Blim team.
The Vancouver Lego Club was showing off some of their crazy designs. The VLC invites other Lego enthusiasts to come down, pick their own block, and build fantastic and wondrous scenes.
The Symmetry Group with their giant origami structures.
And one of the show stoppers by far, Colin Johnson’s The Emperors Cabinet. Colin who makes wooden toys with a sci-fi, steampunk inspired twist was a highlight of the 2013 Mini Maker Faire.
