I am on the planning committee for Southwest Maker Fest, a very cool FREE one-day festival in downtown Mesa. This year I am sharing a booth with some of my clay friends: Mary Anne, Renee, Kater, and Connie. We’ll be taking turns running the booth and giving demos throughout the day. Our booth will be on Pepper Place just west of Macdonald.
Besides our booth, there are all types of awesome artists, engineers, upcyclers, programmers, and crafters. Many of them will be giving tutorials and workshops. You can learn to weld, code, knit, reuse common household items, and relax. You can also participate in collaborative projects, listen to music and story telling, and learn how to grow a better garden. It’s a very family-friendly event with FREE admission to the i.d.e.a. Museum all day. Schedules and exhibitor lists can be found on the website southwestmakerfest.com.
I hope you’ll come and enjoy this one-of-a-kind festival!
