WELCOME TO VANCOUVER MAKER FAIRE!
Mark your calendars! Maker Faire Vancouver is happening Saturday, September 14th 2019 at the Science World.
Join more than 50 Vancouver-based artists, tinkerers, inventors, crafters, and other Makers for a day-long extravaganza of crafting, learning, and exploring!
What makes a Maker?
The Maker movement encompasses a diverse range of disciplines, and welcomes Makers from all walks of life. Makers are tech enthusiasts, metal artists, homesteaders, painters, potters, 3D printing enthusiasts, knitters, roboticists, -anyone embracing the Do-It-Yourself (or Do-It-Together!) ethos. The maker community is expanding, diverse, and inclusive.
Maker Faire Vancouver welcomes a broad range of ideas and projects, and our past Makers have showcased (among other things) large tapestries, metal sculptures, cosplay costumes, robotic dogs, paintings, human-powered vehicles, jewelry, 3D printing projects, blown glass and lampwork, and textile art pieces. VMMF encourages Makers to incorporate a hands-on element to their exhibit, and as a result fair attendees have had the opportunity to try their hand at activities like felting, candle-making, robot building, soldering, letterpress, 3D printing, laser cutting, leather working, spinning, lampwork, and button making.
