"Making is important.
Making, makes people happy. It creates space and time for talking, thinking, sharing and appreciating.
Making makes people…. Well, people. The things, the spaces we go and the relationships we form while making, are essential to human culture. Each group of makers has their own special approach, a particular way of doing things, a culture all of their own."
