Eyebeam's annual, super-kitschy, fun-for-the-whole-family event is back! For one day and one day only, Eyebeam becomes an all-ages, multi-workshop electronic craft-making fair, with entertainment, decorations and plenty of holiday spirit. The workshops are artist-led, free (save for minimal material costs), and you’ll leave with gifts that will far surpass lopsided clay mugs of years past … All in all: A fun, thrifty, edutainment alternative to the trance- and occasionally rage-inducing department-store crawl.

Eyebeam's elves go "enviro-friendly" this year with projects focused on recycling and renewable energies. Create your own fun, affordable, custom DIY gifts including recycled Altoid tin battery chargers, structures created from recycled materials, paperless video greeting cards and more. Workshops range in price from $5-25 but admission to the event is free of charge.
