This Saturday, Shana and I will be featured as spotlighted Makers with our Accessorize with Toys workshop for the Exploratorium’s Open Make: Toys event! Other Makers that will be there: Nathan Sawaya (amazing LEGO® brick artist, super famous!), I-Wei Huang (Toys for Bob, Skylanders developer), and Marek Michalowski (BeatBots LLC). Crafting, robots, and LEGO®, oh my! Below is a screen shot of the webpage for the event:

From 10am-12:30pm we will lead our hands-on projects of Charm Bracelets (intermediate skill) and Expressive Name Badges (all levels). You can find us at the Tinkering Studio area (see map, green area). Then, from 1-2pm we’ll be in the McBean Theater (see map, red area) for presentations and interview with Dale Dougherty, founder and editor of MAKE Magazine and Maker Faire. Q&A with the audience to follow. It’s going to be sweeet! And it’s all included with general admission to the Exploratorium. A collaboration between the ExploratoriumMAKE Magazine, and Pixar Animation Studios, Open MAKE is a monthly program highlighting the tools, techniques, and ingenuity of local Makers.

And I never cease to be amazed by how far my photos go of my artwork. The museum decided to choose the image of my Blue Steel necklace, photographed by Aura O’Brien Photography!
