It’s been a pretty great year work-wise, and one of the highlights was being the Maker-in-Residence at the Burlington Public Library this summer. I got to spend my summer working with amazing equipment and working on a project that I’ve been thinking about for some time. The maker space at the BPL is a unique space and it’s staffed by generous, knowledgeable makers - in fact, everyone at that library seems to be a maker. Every person I met seemed to be passionate about sewing or 3D printing or weaving or laser cutting or woodcarving, and so on. It was impressive and inspiring.
Supremely talented photographer and journalist Nikki Wesley made this wonderful video about the program and my residency.
