  At a time when even writing is getting obsolete, people across the state are answering an inner call to use their hands to make things.  HPR’s Noe Tanigawa finds people are pooling resources and expertise, and computers often play a major role.

An annual maker gathering, the Mini Maker Faire, happens on O‘ahu

Check out the O‘ahu Makerspace and get with their motto:  Let’s make it happen!

The O‘ahu Makerspace is also on facebook.  The new space is located at 2004 Kahai Street in Kalihi.  They are open for business most evenings and on weekends. Their number is 808-845-6253.  Contact them for more on the ‘ukulele making workshop which begins this weekend.  Six sessions, no experience necessary.

Find the Maui makers at their new digs in the Y. Hata Building in Wailuku.

On Kaua‘i, makers are just organizing to get going.  Find out more at kauaimakers.org .  Contact them at info@kauaimakers.org.
