Elements of Making brings together organizations from around the state. In these growing communities, makers can access machine resources and pull from the experience of their peers to create imaginative designs. While the definition of a “maker” is varied, the disciplines include: creative coding, woodworking, metalworking, fiber arts, plastic manipulation, silk-screening, and more. By working in these spheres average makers augment their own skills in unique combinations through continued education and collaboration.
