  One Response to “The Education of Experience”

  1. Alex,
    Great reflection on makers and expert amateurs.
    I understand why you included this image, however I encourage you to give it a context in your write-up. In other words, as a reader, it is hard to make the connection between the text and the image since there is no explicit conversation between the two.
    Apart from that, the account of your mother’s experiences is nicely written and I appreciate how you paid attention to the transformations in her practice and spaces. I also like the way your blogpost somehow contrasts the “collective” practices of making (everyone in the same room) to more “individual” ones (like the garage), but that are still connected to others in different forms. This can help us re-think what collectivity means for maker cultures.
