Mini-Maker Faire in Shelburne

Posted: Updated:

Shelburne Farms welcomed hundreds of guests in Saturday for the 4th annual Champlain Mini-Maker Faire.

Groups of all ages came out to see a variety of do-it-yourself style projects, from drones and robots to arts and crafts. Over 50 makers signed up for the two day event. Organizers say it is a huge success.

"We knew four years ago that it would take some time to get people interested to even know what a maker is. So now we're really coming along, and we have more people interested than ever," said Douglas Webster, from the Champlain Mini-Maker Faire.

Organizers say the event both showcases and brings out the creativity in makers and guests who can take part in crafts and learn about new technology. The event continues Sunday with activities including rocket launching and a ChampBot challenge where homemade, remote controlled Champ monsters compete for cash prizes.
