In early 2014, Thomas Joubert approached me with an idea. He wanted to know if I thought there were enough makers around Lake Geneva to put on an exhibition of making. I didn’t know, but said “why don’t we find out?”. We sent out an email to everywhere we could think of inviting makers to get together to see if there was interest. The first meetup was held at Post Tenebras Lab. A few months later, when it was clear we did have enough interest, the LemanMake association was formed in Lausanne.
The LemanMake festival will be held on 27 & 28 June in Nyon, Switzerland.
