Meet a few of the 2013 Makers!
We have received many great applications for makers so far and we’re excited to announce a few of this year’s maker line-up.
3D Chocolateering, Brian Luptak
3D Chocolateering will be showing off the world’s first Chocolate Selective Laser Sintering 3D printer at the Faire this fall! Just when you thought 3D printing couldn’t get any sweeter, a small group of Mechatronics Engineering graduates based out of Waterloo, Ontario have created a 3D printer that can form solid chocolate objects by thermally bonding chocolate powder using 2W 445nm laser sintering.
Toy Hacking, MakerKids
This year’s faire will have something for all ages! MakerKids will be hosting a Toy Hacking makerstation where young and old alike can use tools and craft supplies to take toys apart and reassemble them into new creations! A 3D printer will be on hand churning out eyes, teeth and other oddities for creations of all kinds. Electronics, soldering irons, and LEDs will also be on hand for further customization. Humpty Dumpty never had it so good!
MakerKids is a makerspace for kids that offers workshops, after-school programs, summer camps, and birthday parties on electronics, woodworking, programming, sewing, 3D printing and much more.
Flame-working…here fishy fishy fish, Natali Baird
Natali Baird will be sharing a unique and mesmerizing glass working technique at the faire called Flame Working. She will be creating glass fish by using a an oxygen/propane torch to melt glass into beautiful pieces of art, live.
Glass has its own sense of movement and internal structure, a quality which allows maker Natali Baird to interact with the medium in an intimate and responsive way. Don’t miss seeing beautiful creations come to life before your eyes this September 21-22!
