There are several workshops happening during the Cleveland Mini Maker Faire that require pre-registration. These activities can either be enjoyed by a single participant or as a parent/child team (one kit per team).
These workshops all result in a terrific take-home work of Maker art and are FREE! However, space is limited so sign up early to ensure you get a spot.
