Start 2012 by crossing your “Ts” with the Exploratorium’s Tinkering Studio. Twenty Twelve begins with four tantalizing T-themes for the Tinkering Studio’s series of Open MAKE events. The first “T,” on Saturday, January 21, is Toys, and will include a visit from Lego sculptor Nathan Sawaya and other Featured Makers. The Toys theme will be followed by Tools (February 18), Time (March 17), and Trash (April 21).
If you are a fan of Maker Faire, you won’t want to miss these tasty appetizers organized by our friends at the Exploratorium. Open MAKE runs from 10am to 2pm on the third Saturday of each month through April. Visitors are invited to explore their own creativity with makers from around the Bay Area, who will share their art, ingenuity, and techniques for making. In addition, Dale Dougherty, founder and editor of MAKE, will interview featured makers in the McBean Theater. This event is included in the price of the museum’s general admission and open to everyone.
Open MAKE is a collaboration between the Exploratorium, MAKE magazine, and Pixar Animation Studios.
