Makerspace

  • Jeremy Taylor, Makerspace

Jeremy, Old Post Office | September 4, 2018

My name is Jeremy Taylor and I love the idea of connecting people and inspiring a community of makers. I am by no means an expert in any one thing, but I’ve always been a very curious person and subscribe to the idea of lifelong learning. My formal education is in Business, Communications and Filmmaking. I’ve spent a lot of time traveling and teaching youth overseas and more recently worked in various library Makerspaces.

Many people talk about the concept of flow -- losing yourself completely in your work and feeling like nothing else matters. There are only a handful of activities that really ignite a sense of flow within myself, and making is one of them. I find it therapeutic and it satisfies a very human need to create. There is no better way to express yourself than through making something you can share with others.

Our Makerspace provides the community with access to cutting edge technology at no cost. Our vision is to bring folks in who can play and learn, collaboratively or individually. Creativity is just an idea in your head, and you don’t need to have any experience to use the space. We really want this Makerspace to be community led and welcome volunteers in any capacity. Starting this month, we will host various events, meet ups and workshops. I hope to see you soon!

I work at Extend-A-Family Waterloo Region and I support individual with developmental disabilities. This opportunity might be great for individuals we support, but I would love more information. I would love to know about the events and volunteer opportunities you have specifically.

This is amazing! I would also love to learn more, and find out how I can volunteer - especially if it means making the space more open to people with physical and developmental disabilities! I dabble myself with arduino and raspberry pi, costume making, wood working and all kinds of DIY projects! I'm definitely interested in what Idea Exchange has planned with the maker space!
