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.
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.
What can you do at Toronto Maker Faire?
- Make your first robot
- Get inspired to design your own wearable electronics
- Learn how to solder
- Take your skills up a notch by attending a hands-on workshop
- Find a project that inspires you and talk to the maker who built it!
