The World's Largest DIY Festival -- World Maker Faire -- is returning to the New York Hall of Science in Queens, NY on Saturday, September 17th and Sunday, September 18th, and the BUST Magazine Craftacular will be there representing the best in handmade crafts! You won't want to miss our outdoor shopping village with free demos, DJs, and the exclusive advance release of the new BUST book, "The BUST DIY Guide to Life".
Along with 50+ crafty vendors selling everything from robot-themed t-shirts to steampunk jewelry, the BUST Magazine Craftacular will host demos from vendors like Loop of the Loom, New York's only hand-weaving studio. Loop of the Loom will be giving hands-on demonstrations of SAORI -- the award-winning Japanese art of weaving -- all weekend.
Plus, get your copy of the "The BUST DIY Guide to Life" before anyone else! Co-authors Debbie Stoller (BUST's editor-in-chief) and Laurie Henzel (BUST's creative director) will be onsite to sign advance copies before the official release in October. BUST crafters will also be showcasing a project from the book at the BUST DIY Lab tent -- stay posted for more details!
This year's World Maker Faire New York, which features the best of do-it-yourself science and technology, includes over 500 makers. From robots that serve pancakes, scented cartography (a smell map!), and an "art car" decorated with over 250 electromechanical singing fish and lobsters, there's definitely something for everyone.
