Example text

They want to be inspired by the culture of making that pervades the space. They want to be able to use equipment or other tools that they cannot afford themselves. They want to learn new techniques to do what they love from those in the makerspace. They want to perhaps have their creations shaped by someone working in a completely different medium—perhaps a medium they might turn to themselves. This all requires a positive community environment. Community is the defining element of the maker movement on both a local and international scale.

They are also open to the general public and, while not centrally owned, must remain open to sharing ideas and activities with other fab labs. Alongside and within the coworking and collaboration is a willingness to teach others. Makers who share space do not necessarily share an equivalence of talent. People come to the makerspace with a love for the creation of items and an acceptance of makers who may not know as much as they do.
