After Makers United, keep it going!

Makers United is not just about building one thing. It is also an invitation to revisit the process of making things. It doesn’t have to involve digital fabrication or even any technology at all. Whatever it is that you are already good at making or even just want to try, it’s the process and experience that counts. Enjoying the process of making can lead you to create bigger and better things
