We recently took a trip south to show off our woodblocks at “a two-day, family-friendly festival of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker movement” also known as the Maker Faire! It all happened in the Bay area over the weekend of May 18th and 19th. It was nothing short of amazing and inspiring on all levels! If you’re not familiar with the Maker Fair or Make Magazine, do yourself a favor and check them out!
Over the course of the two days, attendees made over 1300 etchpop prints at our printing stations! We also debuted our new etchpop print dryers, so everyone could dry their newly made print to take home. Pics of the show can be seen on our facebook page: Maker Faire SF 2012
Thanks again to LaserFaceNateHawk (close Etchpop friend and featured Etchpop Artist) for accompanying us to the Maker Faire!
Here are a few highlights:
Chester with an 11″x17″ Maker Robot print.
At our printing stations fearless attendees took etchpop woodblocks for a test drive!
The kids went print crazy!
Kimi’s “Frog on a balloon” was a popular choice!
She REALLY loved her print!
If you ever need someone to program a robot, call these awesome folks from UC Santa Cruz!
