Makeshift Society is coming to Brooklyn! I love the concept of their Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for a creative tool library at their sunny new space.

And, oh hey, can you spot me in the campaign video?

Listen up parents & kids! This weekend is the Inventgenuity Festival at the Invisible Dog in Brooklyn, NY.  It will explore the theme DIS/ASSEMBLY with two days of hands-on workshops and on-going collective projects led by expert makers, unmakers and re-makers of sound, electricity, food and objects of all kinds.
I’ll be there both days leading workshops on how to make handy pouches from busted bike tubes. This is going to be a grand ol’ mad scientist beehive of activity not to be missed. But, don’t take it from me, take it from the New York Times article all about Inventgentuity!
Interested? Resister here, and come say hi this weekend.
