Grand Rapids is a creative community, and that talent will be on display this weekend at the Grand Rapids Mini Maker Faire.
GRCC associate professor Moss Ingram has been involved with planning the event – billed as the “Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth.” It is planned for the Grand Rapids Public Museum from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., August 18 and 19.
The family-friendly event attracts makers as young as 10 though the mid-80s, showcasing robotics, drones, sewing and jewelry work, 3D printing, virtual reality, glass blowing, specialty foods and drinks, and more.
Artisans will show off their completed and in-progress work and share their experiences with people interested in learning how to tinker and invent, hoping to entertain and inspire as well as grow the maker community.
