ACWA would like to thank the Anchorage Economic Development Corporation, Maker Space Anchorage, and the Loussac Library for letting us make some woodchips on a lovely, sunny Saturday afternoon.
Mathew and Dohnn packed up some benches, tools, wood and nails and had a great time sharing our love of woodworking with kids and the young-at-heart.
Marker Faires are a growing phenomenon throughout the country. Imagine a county fair for Hackers, DIYers, Artists, Craftspeople and Makers of all stripes. It is all based around the idea of Making. Check out their magazine here. ACWA was pleased with the hot weather and terrific turnout. It’s fair to say that we had one of the more popular booths at the whole show. I don’t think there were ever fewer than a half-dozen kids pounding nails, driving screws and cutting wood. We handed out all the business cards we had! This event is sure to grow the club. We hope to get several new members.
Many people had questions about our classes, meetings and various events throughout the year. We are looking forward to seeing some familiar faces in the upcoming months as we hope they will come back. And we really can’t wait to have even more fun at next years Maker Fair!
