CommentsYou know how it is, you see something on a site, and want to write a comment, but the site demands that you become a member first, and there’s a whole registration process with input fields, and avatar uploads and so on, and you finally go “Eh, I’m not THAT eager to voice my though!”.

DIY Days Gothenburg

In January 18th – 19th, 2014, Crafters University participated in a very friendly and cozy event called DIY Days Gothenburg. It was one of the smaller events out there, but that was perfect for Crafters University’s first time on the showroom floor. The visitors where very friendly as well, and very interested in our site. We also had some mini projects for people to fold, and a Microgolf course.  Here’s a few photos from the event:


A youngster visiting our booth, checking out our printed sheets of paper for the “Boomerang paper airplane” and geeky “Pocketprotector” mini projects.


Another youngster, throwing around his very own “Boomerang paper airplane” that he folded by himself.


We also brought a fun little game called “Microgolf”! It’s like mini golf, but much smaller and uses a ball bearing as a golf ball. It was very popular at this event.


Meet us at DIY Days Gothenburg!

Crafters University is going to DIY Days Gothenburg this weekend! We will have our very own table where you can watch videos online, and we also have a special mini project planned. Come and visit us at DIY Days!

Quote from the DIY Days Gothenburg site:

“A gathering for those who create

diy days is coming to Gothenburg January 18th – 19th, 2014.
