Abstract

The MADE Makerspace in Barcelona, Spain is a small community-based, all-volunteer makerspace in the heart of the city center. Located in an old factory building occupying about 187 square meters (2,013 ft2), the space is a little crowded, and the building in need of a refresh. Inside the space there is a woodshop, digital fabrication studio, and electronics area. MADE Makerspace uses three different technology "channels" to keep their members aware of happenings in the space. Even more impressive, the space is using an electronic channel to provide an update on members' projects, including those that are under consideration and not started yet. From this channel, new members and existing members can find experts in project areas that match their interests. MADE does not have an abundance of curriculum but does follow a hands-on, problem-based learning approach to teach members about making. This chapter explores MADE Makerspace Barcelona.
