This year, The 12th Annual Craft Lake City DIY Festival will bring us together to celebrate the do-it-yourself (DIY) mentality, even with the challenges presented by COVID-19, says Angela H. Brown, Executive Director of Craft Lake City. Although 2020’s Festival will be hosted in a virtual reality environment, the format has been designed so you can still interact with 150-plus craftspeople, makers and engineers who craft with technology, create innovative household products and decorative objects. Attendees, volunteers and exhibitors will communicate inside the platform using digital avatars to represent themselves and talk using their computer microphones or headsets. Here, three of these local artists discuss their wares and participation in the Virtual DIY Festival.
