Footscray Maker Lab Session 4

  • May 30, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • Konjo Ethiopian Restaurant and Craft

The evening will begin with an Ethiopian coffee ceremony hosted by Abdul, the proprietor / owner of Konjo Restaurant and Crafts.

Then there will be "speed dating" / networking activity - where people get to network and meet others the have not met before.

Abdul will then tell his story - migrating to Australia, starting a craft business in Footscray, and his vision to build industry to support migrants in Melbourne and crafters in Ethiopia.

Abdul may also introduce some local African artists (provided he can convince them to come;)

There will be an organisers update by Gregor and Dean.

The night will conclude with updates on emerging projects and time for anyone to propose new projects.

All are welcome to come!

    Seeing a factory-made 3D printer which Mary imports, sells and makes jewelry with spiel from her husband, well timed to move us on after sharing diverse ideas.about FML's next steps.

    I didn't make it either - hope it's all going well. I've been at an amazing Architecture conference - "Transform" about remaking the Architecture profession. There was some discussion about DIY and maker labs as replacements for manufacturing in the new economy.
