My National Week of Making

Good Causes >

Bookbinding-NationalWeekofMakingAs a Doer focused on encouraging creative reuse and empowering lifelong learners, I’m thrilled about the National Week of Making.

From June 17-23, people across the U.S. will join together to teach, learn, share and inspire with hands-on projects of all kinds. I will show people how to turn Brown Paper Tickets‘ discontinued print materials into notepads and sketchbooks using basic bookbinding techniques from this Instructables tutorial. I will also show how to turn the materials into paper clay.

Maker Faire, Kansas City

My National Week of Making wraps up at Maker Faire Kansas City, where once again I will help build the Power Racing Series race track from 1,000 re-purposed tires.

On Saturday, June 24, from 11:30-12:30pm, I’ll join an educator-only panel called “Maker-Inspired.” Regional and national maker educators will discuss topics including the importance of hands-on, project-based-learning, incorporating making in the classroom, inclusion, collaboration, budget considerations and more. If you are an educator interested in attending this session, RSVP now as space is limited.

Saturday evening from 5-5:45pm, you can find me at the Maker Couture Fashion Show. If you would like to meet me in Kansas City during June 23-25, let me know.

It’s hard to say what color my hair will be by then, but I can assure you I’ll be visiting Cafe Gratitude every chance I get.
