Maker Faire Tokyo, Day 1

Maker!

Maker Faire Tokyo got off to a rip-roarin’ robotin’ start. The Craft room on the 7th floor of the The National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation was buzzing all day with workshops, hands-on crafts, chatter, and a constant stream of visitors. I decorated a plaque at the Etsy craft table because I found some pom poms that really needed to be glued to something. This, my friends, is the beauty of Maker Faire.

I didn’t get a chance to explore the rest of the building, and had just a peek at the other tables around me. Organs and sea creatures made of yarn, embroidered computer components, iPhone holders and hacks, games, accessories, and a giant balloon that was maybe a jelly fish? I’m looking forward to a bit of quiet time before the doors open tomorrow to get to know my neighbors better. There are some very cool things to look at.

Also, tomorrow I’ll be holding a sashiko deco tissue-case workshop in the afternoon. Materials cost just 500 yen! If you’re in Odaiba tomorrow, please come by and say hello!

Sashiko!
