Linnell Design is excited to be part of the 2016 Minneapolis/St. Paul Mini Maker Faire, a one-day festival featuring over 125 local and regional makers who will showcase, demonstrate and share interactive creations with you. Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for children at the faire entrance.

 Maker is a term used to cover a wide range of creative work, projects and hobbies. If you are a tinkerer, coder, woodworker, crafter, farm hacker, artist, student, designer, chemist, roboticist, entrepreneur, scientist, food inventor, metalworker, educator, green technology creator, inventor, corporate designer or bicycle builder, you are a maker!

 Maker Faire is the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth—a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker Movement. It’s a place where people show what they are making, and share what they are learning.

 The original Maker Faire event was held in San Mateo, CA and in 2015 celebrated its tenth annual show with some 1100+ makers and 145,000 people in attendance. In addition, over 120 community-driven, independently organized Mini Maker Faires are now being produced around the United States and the world.
