You may remember Kevin writing about the The Tool At Hand, or maybe you saw this wild video… either way, I just wanted to remind you that The Tool at Hand Milwaukee Challenge is happening this Saturday, March 17th, 2012 from 1pm to 5pm.

So what is this “one tool/tool at hand” thing all about? Here’s a description:

“Milwaukee is a city full of creative people. The Chipstone Foundation has invited makers in the city to explore the concept of creating a work of art using only one tool.”

Yup… just one tool. Does that mean one tool with 500 attachments, or does it really mean just “one” tool?

I’m not entirely sure, but I’m not just posting this so you can check out Kevin’s work… We’ve got a number of Milwaukee Makerspace members involved and showing what they’ve created with just one tool. If I recall correctly we have Kevin, Shane, Jason H., and myself all showing work.

Also, does anyone else like the fact that they specifically used the word “makers” instead of “artists”? :)
