For our Saturday makerspace workshop, we built benches! This was part of a hands-on workshop in a Portland Makerspace, where five benches were made. The benches were donated to the adjacent community. Each group was led by a leading voice in makerspace culture, allowing participants to become fully immersed in the use of a makerspace and engage in a service exercise that benefits local Portland residents.
