Maker Faire 2013 and the Official After Party

Maker Faire Detroit – July 27-28 9:30am – 6:00pm

With over a dozen projects from the members of i3 Detroit spread across the faire, make sure you don’t miss anything, check out inside the museum along with the i3 tent. Don’t miss the laminar flow fountain our president Matt Oehrlein has put together with the help of his fellow members. http://laminarfountain.blogspot.com/
If you have not had a chance to stop by the space, come to maker faire and see what our members have created.
Afterwards come over to i3 (Saturday 27, 7pm) and enjoy the company of other makers from local and afar.

 

2013 MAKER FAIRE OFFICIAL AFTER PARTY

Make hard, play hard. That’s what we say over at i3 Detroit – Metro Detroit’s D.I.Y. Workspace. Okay, we don’t actually say that, but maybe we should start.
On Saturday, July 27th, i3 Detroit will open its doors to Maker Faire’s finest, and those curious about the creative and inspiring environment we have cultivated at our location. Come on over, take a tour, talk shop, and meet some of the creative geniuses behind your favorite projects you saw at Maker Faire.

We’ll have food and snacks, some “adult beverages” (heh heh), and music to keep you entertained well into the night.

We’re getting some parking details worked out right now at a vacant lot right next to us. We’ll have a parking attendant monitor it, so all your goodies will be nice and safe.

Maker Faire 2013 after party flier

Maker Faire 2012: After Party i3:photobooth

Over the weekend was this years Detroit Maker Faire.

We built, Make and Partied the weekend away!

On friday creators spent the day at i3 putting the finishing touches on their creations, while others prepared for the party saturday night. The space was spotless as a dedicated group stayed over night and constructed a photo booth which became a huge success at the party.

i3Detroit’s PowerWheels teams took 1st(#3) and 3rd(#13-Sean’s car) in the endurance race Sunday. Saturday, i3 took 1st in the 15 lap road course. There is a “YES”(1st place) medal that has been added to the trophy cabinet. For the Power Racing Series, Detroit was weekend 2 of 3, so we head to Chicago next weekend and hopefully all kick some butt to bring home so real trophies!

The party may not have won any awards this year, but we still had fun!! El Guapo taco truck came out, as did Treat Dreams, and Meed by B nektar to help party the night away.  Sunday at least 5 projects from i3 walked away with editor choice ribbons.

Maker Faire Detroit Planning Meeting This Friday

This Friday, May 11th, at 7:30pm, we will be having some guests from The Henry Ford museum over at i3 Detroit to answer questions about exhibiting a project or volunteering at Maker Faire. Please come with ideas and questions you might want to get answered about our favorite event of the year!

This event is open to the public, so we expect plenty of other makers in the area to attend. What a great chance to meet new makers!

Note: Parking in front of the building is likely to fill up, so please consult this map for overflow areas.

Also note: Open Shop Friday will be taking place as usual, with the caveat that loud tools shouldn’t be used until the meeting wraps up, perhaps 9:00-ish.
