Do you enjoy hands-on crafts but don't have much time in your busy convention weekend to attend a full-length workshop? Are you interested in expressing your love of anime, manga, or Asian culture through open-ended, self-guided projects? Stop by the Otakon Makerspace, founded and hosted by presenters Bumble & Clove!

The Otakon Makerspace is a space where people young and old can build countless crafts using a wide variety of supplies - many of which have been generously donated, recycled, and repurposed. Choose from dozens of themed creative challenges in our handy guidebooks, or challenge yourself to experiment and create an original project from scratch! Make memories and work together with friends or fellow attendees to make a truly unique work of art! Take part in our weekend-long featured projects, from teru teru bozu to omamori charms, and create at your own pace in a relaxing environment filled with music and opportunities to display and photograph your work!

At the Otakon Makerspace, everyone is welcome to be a maker, regardless of age or artistic ability. Come visit us, learn new skills and problem-solving techniques, and take part in the fun and inventive process of being a creator!
