Let’s say you’re a sculptor or woodworker, but you don’t have the equipment or the even all the skills yet. You might be able to use a makerspace, a collaborative workspace where folks with an idea can find the tools, space, and knowledge to create things.

In this week’s episode, we’re getting an update on some thriving makerspaces in Portland — this being, after all, one of the spiritual homes of the do-it-yourself movement.  These are not mere spaces, but communities and repositories of knowledge.

This week’s Biz503 hosts: Mike Rogoway, Business Writer, The Oregonian, and Rebecca Webb, co-founder, Portland Radio Project.
