Crafting isn't just for expert makers. Anyone can be a maker. Etsy wants to give everyone a chance to show off their crafting skills by creating vending machines that distribute blocks of wood for people to make something out of.
Etsy will be displaying these vending machines in high traffic areas (ex. Third St Promenade, The Grove, etc.) that will distributing to blocks of wood to people to go and make something out of.
Etsy will go through the hashtag and contact the makers with the coolest crafts to encourage them to sell their creation. The winning makers would receive $1,000 from Etsy to help kickstart their shop.
Etsy will open a section on their site that will display all the items that are being sold through the project
Etsy will collect images from all the items created in this project to create a small coffee book showcasing the creations. This book would be sold on Etsy as well as other hardware stores.
