Toronto Mini Maker Fare: 3D Printing & more!

Toronto Mini Maker Fare: 3D Printing & more!

I’ve told you about my love for 3D printing for months now and today is a special day, my bf is having a 3D printer delivered to his office, it’s also his birthday.  [LOVE YOU!] (He subscribes so this will be in his email :)) You can subscribe too.

I so freaking excited to learn how to print in 3D. Next month is the Toronto Mini Maker Faire where people show what they are making, and share what they are learning. I’m stoked to soak up inspiration and see just what’s possible.

Toronto Mini Maker Faire via @casiestewart - 3D Printing. Robots. Flame Throwing Unicorns. These are a few of my favourite <nerdy> things.

For two days, innovators, artists and hackers from all over the city are busting out of their garages to take part in the biggest show and tell around. It’s going to be 3D printing, robots, Tesla talk, flame throwing unicorns, oh y’know, all my fav nerdy things. Gahhhhhh.  A friend on the organizing team called it “burning man meets craft show” so when she emailed me I knew I had to tell you. You’ll get the to make and learn through interactive activities and workshops too.
