Does the passport really give free access to all workshops? Yes, the passports allow you to experience every workshop in the Maker's Workshop Series in 2017. You can even attend the same workshop multiple times.
Where does the money go? The bulk of the money raised goes directly to supporting the return of the Maker Faire Calgary event. The remainder is used to ensure quality experiences at our workshops. This is made possible through the generosity of you, and our workshop hosts.
