Craft Techniques Zone

Group of people standing in the entrance of the 2023 IBS craft tech zone

The Craft Techniques Zone (CTZ) features a variety of interactive demonstrations highlighting best practices, tips and how-tos in craft-building techniques and skills.

Interiors
  • Carpentry/Fine Woodworking
  • Stair Building
