Open-sourcing a makerspace community

A project by
Fab City Foundation

About the project

Learning about makerspace communities in places that never had one is a challenging task. The closest makerspaces might be too far away to visit regularly. Moreover, the materials these communities post online provide little information on how to make it work. It is hard to start a thriving makerspace community from scratch when you are on your own. That’s the case of Tallinn, the capital city of Estonia.

We involved nearly a dozen stakeholders in producing the Wind Turbine Workshop. As Kopli 93 makerspace opened only a few months before the workshop, this represented an exceptional occasion to activate our networks and generate a broader interest in their work.
