Eric Dunn: BioLuminOids

Natalie Honjo: Mini Succulent kokedama

Kokedama is a Japanese style plant arrangement which is living art by using plants, such as succulent and cactus. Natalie will be on site and hosting hands-on learning to make creations such as Kokedama, Terrarium, hand paint pottery and miniature gardens.

Maker Faire is primarily designed to be forward-looking, showcasing makers who are exploring new forms and new technologies. But it’s not just for the novel in technical fields; Maker Faire features innovation and experimentation across the spectrum of science, engineering, art, performance and craft.

Maker Faire is a gathering of fascinating, curious people who enjoy learning and who love sharing what they can do. It’s a venue for makers to show examples of their work and interact with others about it. Many makers say they have no other place to share what they do. DIY (Do-It-Yourself) is often invisible in our communities, taking place in shops, garages and on kitchen tables. It’s typically out of the spotlight of traditional art or science or craft events. Maker Faire makes visible these projects and ideas that we don’t encounter every day.
