Maker Faire Needs You! (to be said with big pointy finger)

Vanessa immigrated to Victoria from the UK in January 2010 with a background in renewable energy, marketing and media. She’s spent the last year as chief labourer/GC as she fully renovates her 1925 house, which led her to investigate ways to distract herself (escape the house occasionally!) as well as elaborate on her new found skills and rejuvenate her creative side. After discovering and attending Ideas Victoria, Vanessa heard about Makerspace, took their metal forging class and got hooked into the makers/DIY community, and is now helping organise events such as the Vancouver Island Mini Maker Faire to help foster the local Maker community and encourage others to get involved.
