From 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Saturday at the Adventure Science Center in Nashville, come check out the robots, star ships, printers, and a whole variety of humanoid-made inventions at the Mini Maker Faire. Tony Youngblood wrote about it his monthly column “Art in Formation” in Nashville Arts:
“The Nashville faire is one of over one hundred Mini Maker Faires held all over the world. The event is licensed by Maker Media, publisher of Make Magazine and producer of the official faires in New York City and the Bay Area, and organized by Nashville groups such as the Adventure Science Center, ArtsCubed, Make Nashville, NashMicro, and the Middle Tennessee Robotic Arts Society. ASC’s Jeff Krinks says this year’s faire ‘will be even bigger than last year’s and chock full of exciting exhibits and hands-on demos.’ In addition to panels, performances, workshops, and the return of popular exhibits like Chris Lee’s ever-growing full scale Millennium Falcon, Krinks says the faire will feature ‘robotics, 3D puzzles, creative smart-art, origami, electronic gadgets, props and costumes, sculpting, crafts, and much more.'”
Tony and I will be at a booth with our many inventions. Come by to get a hand-sewn wristlet with a 3D printed Make Nashville key chain. We’ll be sewing and 3D printing all day, and we’ll also have our home carbonating system, so you can get refreshed with a fizzy beverage. In addition, Tony will be hosting a paper craft workshop at noon, and he’ll be teaching participants to make movable figures from just paper and glue. Hope to see you there!
