2010 World Maker Faire big hit with CustomMade!
Though I was unable to make it this year, my colleagues from CustomMade were sending me texts and picture messages with highlights from their weekend at the 2010 World Maker Faire! Arielle expressed her interest in sharing some of her experience. So without any further adieu, here she is!
Many of us who work at custom made are makers ourselves. As a painter, I know what it feels like to spend hours in the studio plodding away at a project; the amount of concentration it requires and the time and practice it takes to acquire real, masterful skill. The constant tension between gut-wrenching frustration and beaming satisfaction that surrounds the creative process, which drives an unending pursuit of an even better solution to the project you are working to realize. Our presence at the Maker Faire brought to life the community of makers that we are all a part of, and drove home the purpose of CustomMade.
