We are excited to announce the Chemung County Library District, the Corning Museum of Glass, SUNY Corning Community College, and Southeast Steuben County Library have joined forces to host the fourth annual Maker Faire Twin Tiers on October 24th, 2020 at Corning Community College in Corning, New York.
Maker Faire is a brand known around the globe for its inspirational, family-friendly events. These events have helped to spark the ever-growing “maker movement”. Using both community members and outside exhibitors, Maker Faire puts on what they like to call, “The Greatest Show (& Tell) on Earth,” and it certainly lives up to the name. Reaching out to enthusiasts, crafters, educators, and tinkerers alike, Maker Faire aims to inspire creativity in communities throughout the world with Do-It-Yourself projects and educational experiments.
In 2014, Chemung County Library District perceived a need within our community for an innovative program that would inspire its members in new, fun, and creative ways. From this the CCLD Maker Expo was born, drawing over 100 Makers and 3000 attendees from 2014-2016. As we have transitioned to the status of Mini Maker Faire, this year stands to be our biggest and best year yet.
Our partner, SUNY Corning Community College, earned the number one ranking for Two-Year Colleges in New York State by BestColleges.com—a nationally-recognized source of college planning information. The college was noted for its high success rate for transfer students, a wide range of degree options, and competitive in- and out-of-state tuition rates.
The Corning Museum of Glass is the foremost authority on the art, history, science, and design of glass. It is home to the world’s most important collection of glass, including the finest examples of glassmaking spanning 3,500 years. Live glassblowing demonstrations (offered at the Museum and on the road), bring the material to life. Daily Make Your Own Glass experiences at the Museum enable visitors to create work in a state-of-the-art glassmaking studio. The Museum is open daily, year-round. Children and teens, 17 and under, receive free admission.
We are further strengthened by our partnership with the Southeast Steuben County Library which serves the City of Corning and the towns of Erwin, Corning, Caton, Lindley, Hornby and Campbell.
