That’s right! Great inspiration, cool company, and new stories from Boston Metro makers once again. It’s our (gasp!) fourth edition of Ignite Craft Boston, where up to 20 creative souls talk about their craft for 5 minutes.
Ignite Craft Boston is an Ignite event with a crafty community. Each speaker has 20 slides that automatically switch every 15 seconds. Around the world, folks have been putting together Ignite events to show what they’re doing. Attendees get to see all sorts of amazing DIY in a short amount of time. Tickets are free! Seating is limited and traditionally we pack the space, so reserve your tickets soon.
