Maker Faire

by rygielia

While I missed the Maker Fair, I did go to another sort of DIY Faire over the weekend that had a few interesting craftsmen and women present. It was my first experience going to the NY Renaissance Faire, or any Renaissance Faire for that matter,  but it was an interesting experience nonetheless.

On hand there were candle makers, hand-cast bell makers, blacksmiths and even a chap who makes his own pipes. The latter turned out to be more of an alternative-type smoke stall, but there were a few interesting hand-carved pipes intended for tobacco use;I have a few pictures I can post once I get than hang of this site.

In the meantime, for those of us who missed the Maker Faire, I came across this video from the BBC:

Looks like it was a blast.
