On September 21 & 22, my paper Montreal and I went to visit the New York Hall of Science as an exhibitor and pop-up demonstrator at the MYC Maker Faire 2013!
In addition to exhibiting my own artwork, I gave a series of free demonstrations, where people could sit and create their own pop-up cards with me. People of all ages got to take home their own fearsome shark, or their own cityscape - and some umbrellas too!
And a tiny city-builder, by the name of Wurlington Press!
As well as the Life-Size MouseTrap performance troupe all the way from San Francisco!
There was an amazing kids-only Robot Foundry, with the ROBOT of FREE HUGS!
And the Texas Bike Zoo's 2-person butterfly bikes - which I could seriously have ridden all the way back to Canada in!
And of course - delicious food trucks!
The NYC Maker Faire was a pretty magical weekend to spend in NYC - and I hope the people who learned how to make their own pop-ups make some magic of their own!
