Life has taken a bit of a turn around and I find myself in Bristol, England. It is an amazing creative town with art of all kinds all around. My passion for all things Maker Faire in California has led me directly into the lap of the Bristol Mini Maker Faire where I have taken on some of the organising role with a great team.
This is a small, fledgling event that I am sure will grow some big wings. It is exciting to be in at the start in the town I have settled in on a project that is very close to my heart and my core ideals regarding the making community. This Mini Maker Faire is part of the larger National Science & Engineering week at the MShed science museum in Bristol.
My recent roller-coaster life has landed me in some hot metal. : )

Part of my new life in Bristol, is the artist led group Ore & Ingot that I am working with. Dave Snoo Wilson and Jo Lathwood are bringing the ancient art of casting to the public with live bronze pours, classes and group studio work. They will be one of the groups presenting at a micro-funding event on Sunday called Spoonfed. http://www.thecollect.org/projects/spoon-fed-no-6/
