Abstract

Recently, there has been a surge in making and DIY practices as a result of the maker movement. The online communities that have emerged from these practices and the shared physical locations, makerspaces, are broadly viewed as places for collaboration and peer production. This study examines learning and collaboration that happen among makers within these communities. Interviews with 39 makers provide empirical insight on current collaborative practices of making in online and offline maker communities.
