The long awaited Singapore Maker Faire write up is here! Apologies for the delay, as I have been busy with an event and job transition.
Anyways, I am glad that I made the choice to join this year’s Maker Faire. We got to meet many like-minded crafters and people. People who appreciate what you do, and most importantly, understand what you do! We craft not to earn, but rather, to get people to appreciate and be able to have a usable and functional item that will last them a lifetime.
This year’s Maker Faire had a whooping visitorship of 15403 people, with over 700 makers during the two days of the Faire, held in the Singapore University of Technology and Design.There was also enormous coverage of Maker Faire Singapore and even we appeared on Maker Faire’s blog!
This is the first time that we have our products physically displayed and sold, and it was a damn great experience. Though we didn’t sell much, it was great to see people stop by, look at your products, ask you questions, and be intrigued by it.
Here’s our booth with a simple black cloth over it.
Ta-da! Products on display
Missus at work. Playing with her phone.
Many thanks to the missus as I was involved in another event, and she had to single-handedly manage the booth.
Look at her go!
2nd Day: We decided to have a personalised key chain booth. Patrons could either do it themselves, or we could help them with the stamping. We sold out within the first few hours!
Weekend Ranger: Eating on the right
Customer: Figuring it out on his own
It really was a blast, and we are happy and elated to have been awarded the “Maker of Merit”.
The support and encouragement from fellow crafters was just so unreal, and I must say, there really are a lot of talented people in Singapore.
So do look out for us, and if you want something personalised and handmade, then don’t hesitate no moar! Speak to us!
Till then, have a great weekend!
