Micromakers addresses the desire of our younger citizens for the freedom to make that seems to be disappearing from our schools and traditional clubs. Through a consultation with a group of local youngsters we developed a small program of supported making to keep the skills alive and relevant.
Micromakers is maker lead – participants make what interests them and we gather adult support to help them achieve their maker aims. We aim to help them learn skills and experience promoting, communicating and selling their products. This gentle start to a maker business we hope will spark their entrepreneurial spirit and lead to exciting life opportunities as they develop into adulthood.
We will provide 4 taught classes per year, topics to be decided by youngsters, along with monthly maker meets where ideas are discussed, experience is shared, plans are laid and we make together to help build skills.
