Cleveland Mini Maker Faire 2017

On Saturday, November 4, 2017, the Cleveland Public Library (@Cleveland_PL) celebrated its fifth Cleveland Mini Maker Faire (@CLEMakerFaire) by bringing together area makers and creatives to share their knowledge and encourage others to join them.

2017 marks Cleveland Mini Maker Faire’s 5th year! Are you ready?

This celebration of Cleveland’s spirit of ingenuity, exploration, invention and just plain fun has something for everyone with an emphasis on hands-on action: touch, try, test and tweak, build, break, bust and bedazzle, launch, lift, light and learn, scout, sculpt, seek and show, explore, elaborate, engage and, most of all, enjoy!

Enjoy workshops led by expert Makers.

And, get ready to have your mind blown over and over again!
