Event Details

Thinking about producing a Maker Faire in your community?

Experience Maker Faire Bay Area 2011, and then stay over for the very first "How to Make a Maker Faire" workshop!

This learning session is hosted and led by the leadership team of Make and Maker Fair, Dale Dougherty and Sherry Huss, as well as the Mini Maker Faire Playbook author (and East Bay MIni Maker Faire producer) Sabrina Merlo.

This short but to the point workshop will focus equally on the "yin/yang" making an authentic community-based Mini Maker Faire:   building the culture and producing an event.


Workshop content and rough schedule:

  • 9 a.m. - Coffee and light breakfast
  • 9:30 a.m. - Welcome by Dale Dougherty and Sherry Huss & Group Introductions
  • 10 a.m. - Building Your Maker Community
  • 11 a.m. - Planning Your Faire
  • 11:45 a.m. - WrapUp

There's nothing like coming to Maker Faire to get inspired and understand the real magic of Maker Faire!  We look forward to meeting and working with you!

Pre workshop homework: please visit and read "So You Want to Make a Maker Faire?" on makerfaire.com.  It's a Mini Maker Faire primer—good preparation for the workshop.
