Calling All Makers!
Got mad maker skills? Are you a maker who has something to share? If so, we KNOW you’re going to want to be a part of this! The Cranberry Public Library is proud to announce our Maker Faire, Sat., August 14 from 9 AM - 3 PM.
Our Maker Faire team is sending out a call for makers to exhibit at the event on Saturday, August 14 from 9 AM - 3 PM. We call it the Greatest Show (& Tell) on Earth – a family-friendly showcase of invention, creative, and resourcefulness. We’re looking for engineers to artists to scientists to crafters who want to show off their hobbies, experiments, and projects.
In addition to the in-person, outdoor event, the Maker Faire team is hosting a virtual event at the same time for those that would prefer to present their skills via pre-recorded video.
Participation in the event is free, easy, and most importantly FUN! Plan to bring the family and visit every maker exhibit and table! Apply to be a Maker
Dream, design, collaborate and create at the Cranberry Library Forge
Thanks to generous donors and CTCC, The Forge is ready to open its doors. Similar to makerspaces in our schools, our space features a laser engraver, 3-D printers, computer-controlled cutting machines, an embroidery sewing machine, electronics and a variety of specialized hand tools for crafting.
Library patrons are welcome to register for classes. After demonstrating mastery of the equipment, they will be able to design and create their own projects. Experience isn’t required! We’ll teach you to use the equipment. The makerspace will offer a safe, creative space to learn, create, explore and come together with other makers.
Watch for a list of classes and program to be announced very soon.
We’ve got a really awesome space to work in! We are so excited to introduce you to The Forge and look forward to opening our doors to makers young and old.
Sit tight … we’re almost there!
In the meantime, we are busy behind the scenes preparing supplies and materials that will be used in the Forge. You can help us get up and running by purchasing essential items from our Forge Wish List.
