We LOVE this: Maker Extravaganza is coming to Toronto Reference Library (789 Yonge St.) this July 9-10. This free event will showcase 100+ makers and their wares; including wearables, robots, makerspaces, installations, crafting, 3-D printing, games and tons more. Meet and greet some of the city’s most creative people, and see their projects in action. Better yet, dive in and make your own incredible projects.

Learn how to make an Atari Punk Console DIY Sound Synthesizer, watch a coffee drip printer at work, get mesmerized by pedal pottery, try your hand at carding wool & spinning wheel or play with remote control Lego robots.

Remember: if you want to do something right, sometimes you just gotta do it yourself!
