I kicked off my impression of making and makerspaces this week as very much linked to technology – but by the time I got to the end of the readings I found myself discovering the low-tech side offering so much creative benefit! And as you mention, this program ties in perfectly with this idea. I admire those with the skills of sewing, something which is much less common these days when it is often cheaper to buy pre-made than making yourself. The infographic on the week 9 page is a great reminder that making/creating locally offers great benefit going directly back to the community. A trend like this that continues to maintain momentum has the potential to impact the local and national economies. This week, I am inspired!
