Every now and then on the CMTO blog, we like to feature an upcoming event that helps to highlight Toronto’s amazing creative community. The Makers Nation’s upcoming Meet + Make workshop happening this Sunday September 28th is one such event.What is Meet + Make?
Meet + Make is the first event of its kind that the Makers Nation will be hosting. The Makers Nation founder Christina Hug says that, “the goal of the event is to create a space for people from all different backgrounds and experience levels to come together around the art of making. Basically it’s an excuse to get people out, tap into their creativity, and learn new skills!”
Of course, being Maker focused, the other main purpose of Meet + Make is to showcase some of the amazing and talented makers that have set up shop in the city of Toronto. While Meet + Make is the baby of The Makers Nation, Hug likes to think of this event as a collaboration between The Makers Nation and all of the Makers involved.What can I expect at this event?
The folks from The Makers Nation of course, as well as Makers from The Shop, Nightjar Books, Peach Berserk, and MAKELAB, along with Kaye Prince, Sabrina Doyle. Attendees will be able to choose two intensive workshops in which they will learn skills ranging from wood carving, to how to perfect your Instagram posts. A lunch and learn session will be catered by YamChops with a talk by the founders of BRIKA, and coffee to keep you going will be provided by the folks at R Squared.
The whole event will wind down with a happy hour session, where you can chat with other Makers and attendees, and enjoy some cocktails and snacks.
Sounds like the perfect day to us.
