Makers Rendezvous at Soho's

Sep 14


Connect and share expertise. There will be boat builders, a watercolour painter, instrument makers, wood turners, and more. Some of the presenters have a high profile within their industry, such as YouTuber Jimmy DiResta, outdoorsperson Kevin Callan, and canoe expert Becky Mason. They also have some larger brands like Lee Valley Tools attending to run demos and displays.

Tinkerers, metalworkers, woodturners, paddlers, builders, designers, 3D printers, suppliers, artists, writers, schools, woodshop cooperatives, filmmakers, historians, musicians, programmers, hackers, conservationists, educators, publishers — everyone is welcome.

Support this event andtheir hardworking presenters by purchasing a Supporter ticket for $10, available here. The dinner on Saturday night will be hosted at a local winery and requires tickets, as do a few of the workshops. Should be a lively weekend! Reconnect with old friends and make new ones. Get inspired to get on the water or into the workshop.
