Hi Steph

Thanks for the great post. I recently visited a local Makerspace and was amazed by how much autonomy there was. I think this is extremely important for any Makerspace because by removing limitations on creativity people are able to practice the skills that lead to creativity. I remember when I was in high school and graphic design was extremely limited. There was only a small lab of computers where only the tech elite were allowed to go. I understand that times have changed and now technology is much more accessible but it’s important to note that for people to see the value in creativity and to be able to build confidence in being creative people must be allowed to go beyond the boundaries of what has been done before and be allowed to make mistakes so that they can learn from them.
