What is a Maker? Am I a Maker?

Maker Faire founder Dale Dougherty believes that “We are all makers! .. Makers are enthusiasts, they are amateurs, they are people who love doing what they do. They don’t always know why they’re doing it.” If you’re bringing a Do-It-Yourself aesthetic to a household project, if you’re being creatively resourceful in making furniture, or if you’re teaching your son or daughter how to do woodworking or how to program — you’re a maker. And if you’re a maker, we want to see what you’re working on and help share it with the world.
