I am a longtime crafter and tinkerer experimenting with projects using all different kinds of materials, and specializing in recycling and repurposing items into new, functional objects. I am also a committee member of Buffalo Mini Maker Faire and a longtime Maker Faire participant. I have displayed Cassette-Cycle in several Maker Faires across New York State since 2016, including Empire State Maker Faire, World Maker Faire in NYC, Rochester Maker Faire, Buffalo Mini Maker Faire and Fredonia Mini Maker Faire.
Cassette-Cycle is also featured in Make: Magazine, Volume 76, and has also been recently featured on Make: Project email campaigns.
I have taught classes at Maker Faire in the art of recycling and repurposing; in 2018 I taught a workshop at World Maker Faire on making Cassette Tape Tote Bags. I also teach craft classes locally during the summer.
I will be providing a “take home” document for attendees, documenting the project steps in simple language and photos so that they can follow along with my video and make it again outside of class.
