Heartland Maker Fest was amazing!
Makerspace hosted our 6th annual Heartland Maker Fest on Saturday, Oct. 1 at Urbana’s Lincoln Square Mall and we had the most amazing time! We were happy to provide the platform for 25 makers, 3 performers, a fashion show, and a swordfighting demonstration to showcase their incredible projects.
We had close to 1700 members of the community stop by and learn about medieval swordfighting, electronics, playing in a virtual terrain sandbox, various art forms, origami, reuse and recycle, braiding/tie-dyeing tshirts, game making, and many more activities.
And! Save the date for next year’s Fest which will be taking place on Saturday, Oct. 14, 2017 at Lincoln Square Mall.
