What You’ll Find at the SVA Makers Market


The School of Visual Arts is pleased to announce its first-ever Makers Market, to be held at the Metropolitan Pavilion, located at 125 West 18th Street, on Saturday, June 11, from 11:00am to 6:00pm. Admission is free.

The inaugural SVA Makers Market celebrates the entrepreneurial, do-it-yourself spirit of SVA’s alumni community and features over 50 SVA vendors selling apparel, accessories and jewelry; furniture, decorative objects and housewares; and stationery and self-published books, magazines and comics. Notable items on offer include the following:

Keyboard Waffle Iron (above)
Created by Chris Dimino (BFA 2002 Graphic Design), the quirky Keyboard Waffle Iron features a unique wide format plate that creates a Belgian-style waffle in the shape of a classic computer keyboard.

Interactive Cloud Lamp
The Cloud, created by Richard Clarkson (MFA 2014 Products of Design), is an Arduino-controlled, motion-triggered interactive lamp and speaker system designed to mimic a thundercloud in appearance. It also allows users to stream music via any Bluetooth compatible device and can adapt to any desired lighting, color and brightness.

Baron Fig Notebooks
Baron Fig, co-founded by Joey Cofone (BFA 2013 Design), creates sleek notebooks and sketchbooks that are made of acid-free, fine grain paper and feature specially stitched bindings that ensure that pages lay flat when the books are opened.
