Maker Library = Makespace + Library + Gallery
Maker Libraries are creative spaces that combine reading, showing, and making. They are defined by three key elements: a library, a make-space and a gallery. Each Maker Library connects with the network over an online platform.
Elegant Embellishments Ltd will function as Germany’s first Maker Library in the international Maker Library Network. Its team will operate from their architectural studio, create a community centre and reading-room, host discussions and workshops. They will connect with the other Maker Libraries in the Network over the online platform which also provides access to open source designs and mentoring resources.
