Maker Space & Digital Training Hub
A Maker Space is a not for profit community resource where anybody can learn how to use digital tools, collaborate on projects or just make things for their own use. The idea is to make communities more self-sustainable, improve skills and employment prospects as well as giving people the opportunity to be more creative.
In collaboration with Sustainable St Agnes, a local environmental group, I run a Maker Space on the 2nd Saturday of each month and open my workshop to anyone in the community who wants to learn how to use digital tools. During the day there is a 3-hour morning session from 10.00-1.00 and an afternoon session from 2.00-5.00. There is room for up to 3 people per session and the fee is just £5. I demonstrate how to prepare a computer graphic, set up either the laser cutter or the router and cut a piece of work. Participants then get the chance to design and create something of their own and a truly amazing variety of things have been made.
It is always a really enjoyable day for me and some of the great things that have been made can be seen below. At the moment this is Cornwall’s only open access digital workshop so if you want to get involved in the digital revolution or just want more information please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
