We are joining all our fellow inventors, entrepreneurs, and tinkerers alike in celebrating Makers Week starting Monday 11th June! Creativity is one of our species greatest assets, Week of Making and it's fantastic that we have this opportunity to observe the genius and talent of all those around us that are able to openly display this asset.
Week of Making is a week-long celebration started in 2016 by the Nation of Makers, a non-profit formed with the aim of promoting everyone's ability to think uniquely and express themselves in the form of interactive, hands-on experience. Encouraging this kind of behavior could prompt someone to discover a side they didn't know they had, a side that may not only fill them with a deep immense of satisfaction and pride, but also a side that may ultimately change the world. Through innovative ventures like the Week of Making, people of all ages can join together and enjoy a mutual love for building, modeling, or whatever other resourceful ways they can kinetically express themselves.
All across the world, including Canada and the USA, there are Maker Faires. These events are used to bring people together with a common goal - to make. People from far and wide collectively join forces to showcase the power of creativity and teamwork, all while having a blast! To learn more about the Week of Making, take a look at renowned MythBusters host Adam Savage describing it here. Adam does an excellent job of explaining just how vital generosity and sharing are to the maker culture, and how the more we share, the more we truly have.
Here at Plasti-Block we are inspired by you all. We understand that machining is an art. We are proud to have the opportunity to cater to your passion for this art by producing high-quality consumables such as plastic blocks and rods. We look forward to continuing to do so for a very long time. In the meantime let's make something together!
