Welcome to theMakerSpace!

What is a “maker space” and what’s up with THEmakerSpace? isnt that a bit presumptious?

It could be, but this is South Africa, and we have to keep things simple because we are usually a step or two behind the first world. The Maker Movement, is all about you and me making stuff. Making stuff is important, there is a subtle shift away from demand for mass production and technology is opening up tools that used to be accessible only to the megapower conglomerates that influence economies. Now, the power is in your hands… nearly. But you are invited to be amongst the first, the innovators, the early adopters. isnt that something you’d like said about you? Imagine your mates gathered around the braai, sipping on a cold one and reflecting: “Ja remember Bob, He was the first one to buy/make that whatchmajidget. I bet they are all over at Bobs house now, eating a gourmet dinner prepared by a 3 michelin chef brainstorming about their next world changing idea…” Our advice: when you are the star of the neighbourhood, remember the little people, they may also appreciate an Adriano Zumbo Crock n Bush!

So have a look at what is going on in the maker world:
