I have only just read your post and realised we argued the same type of point but differently! I feel that Etsy is such a demonstration of the output of the makerspace culture and your point that so little is taught in the school environment that there is need for spaces to learn how to be creative is really interesting. I was taught how to cook and sew but that was in the context (many, many years ago) of becoming an efficient household manager rather than as a creative outlet.
I was also interested in Tim Bajaran – I think it was the Caitlin Bagley material which talked at length about making facilities available to those in wheelchairs but I had not considered other barriers which you touched on.
