Maker Day


red39bCalling all makers, innovators, tinkerers, hackers and crafters.
Show Off What You Do During a “Demo Day” on March 8th

To coincide with National Craft Month, the Chicago Craft Mafia and Blue Buddha Boutique are presenting a day of crafty make-n-takes and demos. The event is free and open to the public.

We are looking for interesting people who do interesting things to help make this one heck of a day. Specifically, we’re looking to showcase artisan and handy projects — anything that is made by hand, or anything crafty that is made mechanically or using technology.

Some of the events we’ve lined up thus far:

  • create your own bath salts
  • sewing and rubber stamping make n takes
  • lockpicking demo
  • make a pair of chainmaille earrings or a zipper pull
  • 3D printer demonstration
  • paper folding
  • and more

Event details:
Saturday March 8, 11 – 6 pm
Blue Buddha Boutique
1127 W Granville
Chicago IL 60660
