Hi everyone!

Rika from the Crocker Art Gallery has sent this update and I wanted to make sure everyone saw it. This is going to be a great event and I hope you can make it! Come out and display your stuff!

Rika's message follows.....


Greetings Makers!

Thank you all for responding to our call for the Mini-Maker’s Faire at the Crocker Art Museum on January 10th, 2013.  This event is being presented as part of our Art Mix series which happens every 2nd Thursday.  Here is a description of January’s event.

Art Mix


Free with Museum Admission

This month's Art Mix gets crafty with activities and entertainment inspired by the Maker Faire movement. Enjoy folk-rock rhythms from Be Brave Bold Robot, collaborate on a massive sculpture made from recycled materials, and support the local economy in style by purchasing goods from local makers. Pick up or polish your DIY skills at make-it stations covering crafts from crochet to jewelry-making. Presented in collaboration with reCREATE and People Who REALLY Build Things!

We are excited to have so many folks who are interested in participating.  We are still looking for a few more, so if you know of anything exciting going on in the Maker world, please let us know.  Here are the details for the night that you will need to know.

1. Booths at the event are free.  However, any vendor who is selling items at the event can choose to pay a $20 flat fee or 20% of merchandise sales.  This amount will be due on the night of the event.

2. Every Maker will have a 6 or 8 foot table with a linen in the museum.  Access to power is limited so please let us know early if you need power for your booth.  Also, if you need additional equipment, please let us know.

3. The museum has several restrictions on what can be brought into the galleries so we will need a detailed list of all of the materials you are bringing so we can determine where to place you.

4. Remember that we are looking for vendors who are either doing active demonstrations of their process or who have opportunities for visitors to try their hand at making.

5. We are expecting 300 – 600 attendees at the event.  The Crocker may be able to assist makers with the cost of supplies for their visitor activities, so please let us know what your needs are.

Our Public Programs Intern, Elena Lozano, will be sending out more information to all of you regarding load-in and other instructions for the night of the event.  In the meantime, please feel free to e-mail or call me with any questions.

Thanks Again!
