 This week I realised for the first time what it means to be a '​maker'​. It's a very different way of creating objects then that I have been taught. Firstly it is about making it work, secondly it is about speed. Whether it is original, scalable, innovative, aesthetic is all of second importance. Where I would spend a week thinking about how to get to making an innovative frame; what is on the market now?, what type of fabrics need to go in?, how can we make it a multi-usable as possible?. All the time I had spent thinking and designing, was all the time it took to make the whole machine.  ​ This week I realised for the first time what it means to be a '​maker'​.
