BLRF Episode 6 — Buffalo Mini Maker Faire
Please give a listen to our newest radio episode, “Old Media’s Not Dead!” This was recorded live at BarCamp Buffalo on April 26th so if you missed that event, you can relive Eunice’s talk now!
Our next video episode will be coming out fairly soon too so stay tuned! Damn it feels good to be off hiatus.
REPRAP 3D PRINTER
While we’re still on the subject of DIY - check out this video about the self-replicating 3D printer. Recent graduate Shane Fitzpatrick successfully manufactured his own 3D printer during his thesis year.
RepRap is by no means the only self-replicating printer but it is reputable and super affordable
This 8th-Grader Was So Creative He Inspired the White House to Host Its Own Maker Faire
Buffalo Lab was repping Mini Maker Faire and it was awesome.

Bookbinding let’s you stitch your stories together. Like papermaking, bookbinding has a long history of being an excellent resource for recording thoughts. To bind a book you simply need to attach pages together. Stitching techniques can be as decorative as you’d like, or as simple as a staple. Binding your own book means you can bind your own sketchbook, and no artist should be without a sketchbook.
Bookbinding gets us thinking about the sequence of things – the cover, the beginning, the middle, and the end of the book. Construct your own narrative of a real (or imagined!) event by writing, illustrating, and binding your story. More curriculum connectors can be found here.
