Athens Maker Fest 2014 promises interactive, creative afternoon

Make Something!

Spend an interactive afternoon at the Lyndon House Arts Center on Saturday, August 9, celebrating technology, innovation and creativity at Athens Maker Fest 2014.

Athens Maker Fest is the first event of its kind in the Athens area, bringing together artists, crafters, software and hardware developers, tinkerers, and other creative people to teach and demonstrate, helping others advance or begin their own creative projects.

About 40 different kinds of makers such woodcarvers, felt makers, metalsmiths, and even the teen Lego Club from Athens-Clarke County Library will demonstrate. There will be three interactive technology based exhibitions available for participants to explore and enjoy, as well as someone demonstrating 3D printing and other technology-based endeavors.

The event is free and open to the public and will take place from 2:00 to 6:00 p.m. at Lyndon House Arts Center. Athens Maker Fest 2014 is sponsored by Reflecting, Sharing, Learning, a leadership grant awarded to the Athens Regional Library System and Lyndon House Arts Center by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services. Hatch Athens, an organization of artists, software and hardware developers, creatives, tinkerers, thinkers, and doers that strive to educate, collaborate, and innovate, has partnered with Reflecting, Sharing, Learning for Athens Maker Fest 2014.

A limited number of parking spaces is available at Lyndon House Arts Center. Other options for parking include onstreet parking and downtown parking decks. Also, Athens Transit has a bus stop at the corner of Dougherty and Jackson streets. Check for schedules.
