What is Make & Take?
How many times do you buy a kit and have no idea how to begin? The make and take is an opportunity for you to purchase a mini version of a technique/kit, have a conversation with the exhibitor. Tables and chairs will be nearby for you to create whilst at the fair- then if you get stuck the exhibitor is on hand to help.
