The Value of Handcraft in the Makerspace Experience

Makerspaces at MIT are not just about technology; they also celebrate the age-old art of handcraft. In addition to high-tech tools like 3D printers and laser cutters, students are discovering the value of traditional crafts like knitting and crochet. These activities provide a unique avenue for creativity, community building, and a deeper understanding of materials. MIT's crafting socials have attracted students who've never visited the makerspaces before, bridging the gap between high-tech and traditional craftsmanship.
