“I’m a maker!” Reflections from an Invent to Learn Workshop

Dianne Laycock writes in her blog post, “I’m a maker!” about her experiences at the Invent to Learn workshop in Sydney, Australia.

And what did I learn from my making?

  • Just dive in and play
  • Try, try and try again, and if it still doesn’t work…
  • Ask someone for help
  • Time flies when you’re “in the zone”
  • Making needs to be meaningful – why else would you do it? ( so those who know of my affinity for graphic novels would recognise my “brooch” as a thought bubble with a kapow symbol and not just “two bits of felt stuck together” – my son’s description)

Wise words indeed! Read the rest of Dianne’s reflection here.
