Dennis Hansbury’s Handcut Illustrations are exactly what they sounds like, andt they are awesome! With the use of a scroll saw, Dennis creates works of art on wood surfaces, and paints illustrations on them, giving you art you can hold in your hand!
At Maker Faire Orlando, this exhibit will have a wide variety of Halloween, Steampunk, and Comicbook art illustrations. There will also be demonstrations of how the surface of the wood is prepared, and how the illustration is placed on the wood before the scroll saw is used.
Don Gruel and Noel Holland of Wizard Brooms are making sweeping strides in crafting the most beautifully detailed and yes, colorful, brooms in Central Florida and even the Nation. Let’s just say these aren’t your grandma’s broomsticks, but rather works of art that require ingenuity, individuality and of course imagination. By combining proper broom making techniques and their entertainment backgrounds, Wizard Brooms provides the authentic missing piece to cosplayer’s and collector’s of all ages. Let’s get to know the wizards behind the brooms and be sure to stop by and see them at Maker Faire Orlando on Oct. 22-23 at the Central Florida Fairgrounds.
If you are a maker with a pending exhibit, don’t be dismayed if we have not approved your exhibit yet. We meet weekly to review and approve – and we work hard to ensure that we have a diverse group of exhibits, and that we can meet the requirements of each exhibit. It takes time, and we greatly appreciate your patience 🙂
