Makers Day

Makers Day

To highlight Sacramento’s talented maker community, Arden Fair hosted Makers Day, a one day event showcasing a diverse group of local makers ranging from holistic skin care to sculptural art pieces. Guests had the opportunity to learn about the makers’ artistry through product demonstrations. To further bring our community together, select Arden Fair retailers collaborated with the makers to host a pop-up in their stores. 

The event took place on Saturday, November 23rd from 11 AM to 5 PM near JCPenney

As a child, Diana dreamed of becoming a scientist or an artist, however, her love for art conquered. She was known by her teachers for being unorganized and often distracted. What brought her mind into focus was art. Specifically, wire sculpting. Diana’s love of wire sculpting came unexpectedly when she was assigned to create an original piece of art out of wire.
