As we build excitement for Maker Faire Orlando on October 22 & 23, we love to get out into the community to show what makes Maker Faire awesome. This year we are taking Makey our giant inflatable red robot to ARTLando, The Creative City Project, FamiLAB, Rockler, and more. We are also offering our “Make-a-Shirt” workshop so that you can make your own Maker Faire Orlando shirt before Maker Faire!
Make-a-Shirt Practice workshop- Sunday, September 25th
Come see us at MakerFX @ DeltaMaker in South Orlando from 10AM till 3PM on Sunday, 09/25/2016 and learn how to screen print your own Maker Faire Orlando shirt! (Please share the Facebook Event link with your friends!) This workshop has a $5 materials fee, and that includes a shirt in your size in either black or grey. If you’d like to bring your own shirt, it’s only $3! Better yet, take the workshop for free by volunteering to help with a screen printing station at the events below or by at Maker Faire Orlando. We are testing our setup for the following events, and encourage everyone to come out and see how it works. This is also a great time for our exhibiting makers to stop by, ask questions, see the space plan, and deal with any remaining issues.
