In addition to making things with sticks and yarn, kim spins yarns on a spinning wheel and stories with pen and paper. She also felts and makes art on canvas and wood.
This year at makers faire she’s gathering a group of folks that knit and spin and generally get down with Fibre craft of any kind. If you want to hang out and learn to knit, we will have yarn and knitting needles and folks that can show you how.
Gibsons Building Supplies in upper Gibsons has expanded their support over last year to become a Gold Sponsor for 2016.
We appreciate GBS’ commitment to ingenuity and exploration – it makes a material difference to our ability to put on a Mini Maker Faire in our community.
If you’re a Maker, you can reward GBS for their support of our Maker synergy by shopping there for your supplies.
We are delighted to announce Polycount as a Gold sponsor for the 2016 Sunshine Coast Mini Maker Faire.
Polycount was started by and is maintained by professional video game artists back in 1997 and is still going strong today. In addition to the popular forum at the heart of the site, Polycount was expanded to include ‘Polycount Updates’ – interviews, articles, and tutorials of interest to those in the game design industry.
There are now over 50,000 professional and hobbyist game artists participating on the site. We’re stoked to have them aboard!
“A thriving community makes all of us stronger. And it all begins with neighbours rolling up their sleeves and doing their part – so that’s what we do every day!”
I support the Maker Faire because I love taking do-it-yourself projects to the next level. Bigpacific Creative Digital Strategy & Web Design is all about recognizing and celebrating creativity, and my personal love in the maker space is the marrying of art and tech. Maker Faires bring people together to spark ideas, collaboration and next-generation problem-solving… plus they are a ton of fun.
I support the Mini Maker Faire because it demonstrates what a vibrant and innovative community we have on the Sunshine Coast. This faire provides a great opportunity for the all the makers on the coast to get together and share their fun with the whole community.
Where would the world be, today, if not for creative, innovative people, who came before us, and those who are with us today. We can’t do anything for those who came before us, but we can certainly make a positive impact on those creative individuals, here and now – – some of whom will be at the second annual Sunshine Coast Mini Maker Faire on May 29. Plan on attending, and supporting our local innovators and inventors.
