I grew up in the Bay Area, and have loved the Exploratorium since I was a little kid. I still think of it as one of my all-time happy-places. So when they asked me to come and play with them in The Tinkering Studio, it was like getting a call from my childhood hero and the answer was, of course, YES!
I’ll be doing hands-on, drop-in felting demos throughout the day on March 15 & 16 (hours TBA). The main event is Saturday, March 17th:
A collaboration between the Exploratorium, MAKE Magazine, and Pixar Animation Studios, Open MAKE is a monthly program highlighting the tools, techniques, and ingenuity of local Makers. Visitors are invited to participate in tinkering and making activities inside the Tinkering Studio, where Makers from around the Bay Area will share their work. In addition, Dale Dougherty, founder and editor of MAKE Magazine, will interview Featured Makers in the McBean Theater.
This month’s theme will be tools. Four Featured Makers will be interviewed in the McBean Theater between 1 p.m. and 2 p.m., talking about their work and process, and taking questions from the audience.”
I’ll be one of the featured makers and I hope you’ll come out and play!
