What’s a MakerSpace?
If you want the practical answer, it’s a place where you can come and get stuck in to loads of interesting kit, from good old craft bits to high-tech whizz-bangs such as 3D printers, arduinos, circuit boards, samplers and wearables.
If you don’t know what all these things are, don’t worry. Just come along to a session and you’ll meet all kinds of techies, artists, geeks and garden shed inventors, who’ll be thrilled to point you in the right direction. Young or mature, techie or old school, you’ll soon be on your journey of inspiration. Share your own skills and learn some new ones. Bounce ideas off each other and get buzzing with exciting craft, design, music, art and invention projects. Stay curious. Share ideas. Make stuff.
I think that having the space to create things is a wonderful idea - especially as it is often hard for children to be creative at school where everything is limited and focussed on the curriculum.”
I think that today went really well – I attached my speaker and board onto the case and paced all the outputs one way in order to allow easy cable management. I made progress and enjoyed it”
