What is a Call for Makers? Basically it’s an invitation to come show your stuff at the event. We ask you to fill out a form telling us about what you’d like to show at the Faire, so we know who you are and we can keep track all of you, and we choose as many as we can fit to exhibit on September 17th &!8th.
But who is a Maker and what kinds of exhibits are appropriate? Pretty much whatever you make or do that you’re passionate about, as long as it’s something you can easily share with others. Maybe you and your child have made a box car, and would like to show it off. Maybe you make hats and mittens out of old sweaters you’ve felted. Maybe you’re an artist and the traditional gallery venue doesn’t really fit the scale or the mood of your work. Maybe you teach dance and you could teach it to a crowd! Or maybe you have a half-finished project in the garage that is just itching for a deadline… This is your great excuse to get out the tools or the knitting needles or whatever it is you’ve been neglecting!
Your Mini Maker Faire submission can be a display of something you’ve done, an activity you offer to do with kids and adults. But we are also looking for performers, teachers, and arts, crafts, as long as they fit the theme.
