Upcycle with Jing in Wärk: fest (maker fair), Espoo Finland
On November 10th I was invited by Wärk: fest (DIY and culture festival) in Iso Omena library to show my upcycled products and give an upcycling workshop to public. There are different makers in Finland gathering together showing what kind of products / demo can be made by hand or with the help of technology.
A maker is a participant in WÄRK:fest, who has one’s own maker booth, workshop, presentation or demo in the event. With the format the maker can demonstrate or present the making, prototype, success or trial & error for other participants.
