Maker Faire Austin 2016: the video!

Thanks so much to Stephen and OC at The Habit of Seeing: Visual Storytelling for capturing so many magical Maker Faire moments and putting them all together into this amazing video!

Craft Lab!

Craft Lab was amazing this year, packed full of fantastic projects that kept young and old engaged for hours!   String and Rope was the theme, and included projects like potholders on mini looms (and one collaborative one on a custom-made giant loom!), embroidery, god’s eyes, and much more.  On Sunday the Boy Scouts brought rope making, knot tying, and lashing which was a big hit.  Craft Lab is ALWAYS an essential part of our Faire and a fascinating space that’s hard to leave!   There’s so much to get into for all skill and interest levels._DSC8953IMG_6745 IMG_6730 IMG_6729_DSC8956 _DSC8957  IMG_3914 IMG_3916 IMG_3891 IMG_3894

FASHION SHOW!

This year we launched our FIRST ANNUAL Maker Fashion Show at the Faire.  It was a fabulous start, and we can’t wait to see it grow bigger and better each year!

What will YOU wear to Maker Faire in 2017?  You’ve got a whole year to design your outfit!  🙂
