Steam Punk High-Low Tech Project for Maker Faire

Join us in making a High-Low Tech Flower display that will be exhibited at Maker Faire in New York City on September 20th & 21st. FUBAR Members, guests, friends, and family are all welcome to participate. Here is how it works:

(1) Make a flower out of something, anything. Recycled Materials. Yarn. Crochet. Soda Cans. Let your imagination be the limit. Only make them light enough to be mounted to a canvas.
Inspiration: http://pukado.blogspot.nl/2014/06/crochainting-crochet-and-canvas.html

(2) Bring those flowers by August 24th to FUBAR. (3) We will incorporate the flowers into a skyscape or steampunk theme with moving gears. The flowers received will determine the theme. We will add LEDs and other components to complete the theme and add the High tech portion of the project. (4) Join us on Saturday September 6th to help finish the project. If we need we can also meet on the Sundays prior to Maker Faire.

    Hi everyone! What are you making your flowers out of? I've got a few soda cans saved but can't decide on whether I want to do that or knit or make paper blossoms.
