Not sure yet
Does this contribution include work by a young maker[s]? (under the age of 18)

Description of your contribution
This text will be used on your Maker sign as well as in other Maker Faire publicity. If you are offering a workshop, be clear about your plans for this. Be descriptive!
If you have ticked 'Commercial' above, what do you plan to sell?
If you would like to sell your own creations at Maker Faire, you are welcome to do so as a Commercial Maker. Commercial Makers are responsible for their own business transactions - whether it be via cash, credit card, barter, or some other means. The fee for Commercial Makers depends on the size of the stall and starts at $50. Please contact the organisers for further pricing details. This fee will be invoiced in advance and payable prior to receiving your Maker credentials.
