The 2nd annual SLO Mini Maker Faire is TOMORROW from 11am – 3pm at Mission Plaza. Anyone interested in science, technology, engineering, art, math, DIY projects, steam punk, green tech, upcycling, 3D printing, crafts, or anything else related the Making should visit our Maker booths. Meet our Young Makers from SLO County middle and high schools and over 40 other Makers from around the Central Coast and beyond. This is a free community event and we hope to see you there!
Our fifth and final Maker interview is with Erik Gutterud of Start Making.
“What will you be bringing to the faire this year?”
Erik will be bringing his fully functional hand-made 3D printer, created from a repurposed Reprap. He will also be showcasing some smaller projects that he has been working on.
“What does it mean to be a maker?”
For Erik, being a maker is about making things happen. He encourages others to start creating, whether the task be big or small. He is excited to be at the faire this year to meet and see what the other makers have created.
