What is a Maven?
Gathering the name from a book by Malcolm Gladwell, The Tipping Point, a maven is someone who is an expert in a particular field and is willing to give out that knowledge and experience freely. They are information brokers distributing their craft and skill knowing it will better the community around them and in turn help them as well.
What is a Makerspace?
Imagine a gym. People go to a gym to use equipment that would be too expensive to buy on their own and to have access to training on how to use that equipment. Now imagine a place where you can have access to wood working, metal fabrication, 3D printing, laser cutting, CNC, digital fabrication labs. Yeah! That would be fantastic! That’s what we are making. A Makerspace.
