Maker's Mart
Maker's Mart

Maker’s Mart is a one-day alternative/indie craft fair held in Toledo’s UpTown District that represents the best of Midwest handmade goods. It’s a celebration of unique, one-of-a-kind items that have a little more to offer than your traditional “craft.”

Maker’s Mart seeks new and original concepts made from scratch, old school standards that use new and unconventional materials, found objects, re-purposed treasures. It’s about bold ideas, bright designs, and classic concepts with a contemporary touch that are maybe just a little askew and off-kilter.

It’s about celebrating functional goods that flirt with the edge of fine art, and vice versa. Maker’s Mart is a celebration of Toledo’s DIY makers of the modern craft. The afternoon features food, drinks, music, and an unrivaled, intensely local shopping experience to snatch up totally unique, one-of-a-kind handmade holiday gifts. Enjoy.

Exploring Craft CMS with Rachel Rine and Madhouse
Seed Coworking

Created in the shadows by ExpressionEngine expats, Craft CMS is an ultra flexible content management system that makes designers, developers AND clients happy. From custom fields, to Twig templates, Craft makes no assumptions about what your content could or should look like. Craft CMS is eye-opening for Wordpress developers, sanity-restoring for Joomla and Drupal developers, and makes building websites fun again.

Rachel Rine, our guest speaker, will be walking us through getting started with Craft and showing off some incredible examples of implementation in both the backend and in templating.

About Rachel Rine: Rachel spends most of her time churning out code as an interactive designer/developer for Madhouse, where she enjoys optimizing performance, accessibility, and usable design. When she’s not grumbling about #serverstruggs, you can probably find her listening to econ podcasts, playing board games, and trying to keep her plants alive.
