Not sure if you’re a maker? You probably are, even if you don’t know it yet!
If you believe in doing it yourself (whatever “it” is), you’re a maker! Makers come from all backgrounds and walks of life. Their projects can range from traditional crafts (woodworking, knitting/crocheting, food preparation/preservation) to modern technological hobbies (robotics, electronics, Arduino, 3D-printing), and often combine the old and the new. Maker projects can be artistic statements, practical gadgets, or both. There are many more ways to define makers, but the great part about makers is that they often defy categorization altogether.
Examples of those who participated in previous Eugene Mini Maker Faires include a model rocketry club, a high school robotics team, a steampunk artist, a guild of local weavers, a designer of a unique kids’ building toy, and a creator of an electronic beehive counter. As you can see, maker projects can run the full spectrum!
