i3 Detroit is again lucky to be involved with the Detroit Urban Craft Fair for their 5th anniversary. The event is this weekend at the Filmore in Downtown Detroit starting at 10a on Saturday (12/4) and 11a on Sunday (12/5).
Besides the many vendors selling unique and cool crafts, you will find i3 Detroit doing 2 Make N’ Takes for the fair.
Matt is doing a soft electronics project. He is taking cowboy hats and outlining them in EL wire for that necessary accessory for your holiday party. This is a hands on build and we will help you every step of the way.
Amy is doing a Scrabble tile jewelry project. She will be taking everyday Scrabble tiles and crafting them in to unique jewelry for gifts or yourself. This is a hands on build as well where she will guide you through the process.
Both projects have small fee but you get to take home your homemade craft.
i3 Detroit is also working on a top secret project that will be unveiled at the show. Come check it out. I promise, it will be worth it.
All Hands Active (our hackerspace friends to the West) will also be there with a cool soldering Make N’ Take.
