ReMake this blockbuster lamp!

If you're in New York this weekend, come to Maker Faire and ReMake projects with me and the rest of the designers, hackers, makers and creators there!

Catch my old movie filmstrip into lampshade project on Saturday at 11am on the Maker Square Stage. Plus the first 25 of ya'll will get your own materials to create a gift bow.

If you can't MAKE it there, then ReMake this lampshade by following along with the instructions I wrote up for Made + Remade over at the DIY Network.

MAKE it this weekend!

Hey ReMakers! The Greatest Show (And Tell) on Earth is coming to NYC this weekend and I know I wouldn't miss it. This fourth annual World Maker Faire will launch on Saturday and Sunday at the NY Hall of Science. Where else can you make something explode, solder a circuit board, learn to knit, pick a lock, find a secret restaurant, upcycle your soda bottle, and just join one big celebration of geekdom with your fellow Makers? Maker Faire - that's where!

I'll be on-site on Saturday at the Maker Square Stage from 11 - 11:30 showing you how to upcycle movie film into a lampshade and more. PLUS, the first 25 people at my demo will get their own kit of materials to ReMake a gift bow from movie film which I'll walk them through step-by-step. These projects are easy to do - and they're sure to be blockbuster hits.

If you can't make it to the NYC Faire, then see if there's an event in your neck of the woods. I hear there's even Maker Faire Rome coming soon. A world of Making is out there!
