Create a Mask, Contribute to a Community Art Installation and Meet a Famous Robot at the Maker's Masquerade, Dec. 28. This Benefit For Seattle's Jigsaw Renaissance is Produced in Partnership With Brown Paper Tickets.

Dec. 16, 2013 (Seattle) Create a masquerade mask adorned with lights, contribute to a community art installation and meet Dalek Clara, a life-sized robotic replica of a character from "Dr. Who" at the Maker's Masquerade, Dec. 28 at 6 p.m. at Jigsaw Renaissance, Inscape Arts Building, 815 Seattle Boulevard South in Seattle's International District. The all-ages party will feature materials and instruction for light-up mask-making, refreshments, raffles and the music of Tim Scallon. Tickets are available in advance for a minimum of $8 each, with a pay-what-you-can opportunity to donate more than the ticket price to support Jigsaw Renaissance maker space, at http://www.BrownPaperTickets.com/event/531948. Tickets at the door will be a minimum of $10.

"We want to foster collaborative creativity while raising funds for our community space," said Tamara Clammer, a Doer for Brown Paper Tickets advocating for the maker community, and a producer of the Maker Masquerade. "Maker spaces like Jigsaw Renaissance are a place for building community while building something fun, together."

Attendees are invited to dress in their favorite handmade attire, or create something new. A selection of items will be available to fabricate or decorate a mask, belt, tunic or other costume pieces that guests bring. Makers from Jigsaw Renaissance will show party-goers how to make a very simple circuit using LEDs and aluminum tape, so guests can add a few holiday lights to their ensemble, or to a community art installations being created through the evening.

"Adding lights to a masquerade mask really makes you 'stand out'," said Clammer. "The masks can be kept as a holiday souvenir, or re-worn for other masquerade occasions, such as Mardi Gras or Halloween."

Fundraising raffles for maker-oriented prizes, refreshments and the music of Tim Scallon will add to the festive environment and atmosphere. Robotics enthusiasts and sci-fi fans will enjoy mingling with special guest Dalek Clara, a life-sized remote-controlled replica of the robot made famous in "Dr. Who," built by Seattle maker Shaylee Bell.
