Toronto Mini Maker Faire

The best part? It's totally free. Think about what you want to 3D print beforehand to avoid that glazed, overwhelmed look all 3D printing workshop tutors know too well.

Posted by Aubrey Jax / November 18, 2014

today in torontoToday in Toronto Just Eat It: A Food Waste Story will ask us why we throw away 50% of our food. Having worked at a raw smoothie bar, I can back up this figure. Your green smoothies make me sad. Nu Music Nite at The Horseshoe Tavern is free and features Ascot Royals, Amy Zen, Black Collar Union, and Junior Felix.

OCAD's print program is pretty stellar, and you can support them all day by buying your very favourite thing: grilled cheese. Chaos and waste will likely not ensue. If you're feeling blue about yourself, there's also free therapy. I cannot confirm the value of free therapy. For more events, click on over to our events section.
