MAG SF at Maker Faire, 2010

Besides checking out all the exhibits and demos at this year's Maker Faire in the Bay Area, I volunteered some time helping out at the Metal Arts Guild San Francisco (MAG SF) booth.  I carpooled with Harriete Estel Berman (actually her husband dropped us off so we didn't have to pay $17 to park for one day) and was her helper at her Riveting workshop. 
Here's Harriete showing the techniques of riveting.  Since we were stuck under a large building overhang, the lighting wasn't all that good.

Our participants busy working on their pin or pendants

Wha-la!  A beautiful pin.

A western-themed pin (note the cowboy hat on the bottom)

These are just a few happy students who were so proud of their own creations.  It's just wonderful to see the big smiles on their faces.
