People near retirement age often think about what they want to be involved with in the future as their focus shifts from the “work” they have been doing for decades to the dreams they have of pursuing more creative endeavors. Some have had the opportunity to experience hobbies such as woodworking or other craftsman type arts and some may even had a garage workshop for this purpose. Many still just dream of this and as they downsize their living space they could use access to a shared facility with all the tools and training. Maker Spaces are popping up in cities all over the world as the DIY tenet continues to gain traction. The Spaces are becoming education centers and social gathering places and project collaboration is common. There are financial rewards for those who follow through with selling the goods and art they produce. Maker Spaces are usually non-profit and run by the members. This allows the overhead, assets and other resources to be shared and make the operation viable for the membership. Another huge benefit is when the members engage and share their experience with the rest of the community.
