The 100 Days of Making challenge was launched on February 1 to promote the maker community in Central Louisiana, with participants committing to making something for at least 100 days. The challenge is connected by CLEDA but was truly designed to be inclusive of the entire region’s makers.
In addition to technology-related projects, participants have also been drawing, machining, welding, writing, knitting, assembling, painting, sculpting and making things for weeks.
“100 Days of Making is a celebration of making, both the made thing and the process of making,” said CLEDA President Jim Clinton. “More than anything else, we want everyone in Central Louisiana to connect to the idea of making and to be proud to be part of a region of makers.”
David A. Crain, a three-decade career creator who owns DAC Creative Solutions, says he loves the energy that has happened as a result of the challenge.

“I’m delighted to see how many people have joined in on this challenge and are showcasing the work they are known for,” Crain said. “I’m also very delighted to find out how many makers there are out there that we didn’t know. It’s inspiring to see.”
