“Write it. Shoot it. Publish it. Crochet it, sauté it, whatever. Make.” That was the advice film and television writer/director/producer Joss Whedon famously imparted to would-be creatives in a 2009 Hulu blog Q&A that went viral. Valley dreamers and doers are taking the directive to heart and embracing their inner Ralph Waldo Emersons – or at least their inner Ron Swansons – and putting some elbow grease into crafting more creative, self-sufficient lives. They’re woodworking. They’re developing machine prototypes. They’re baking organic chia scones. These craftspeople, artists and “makers” are doing it themselves – with a little help from Valley maker spaces, which provide physical space and resources.
