Default Makerspaces

I was recently asked to give a talk at our local makerspace; Monadnock Art Tech. My talk was about online marketing for about 15 local artists. The attendees do work in fibers, metals, stone, marquetry, painting, ceramics, jewelry, and on and on. If you have a makerspace in your area I highly recommend getting involved. As a guitar maker I find the wealth of artists in my area very inspirational. I have already been influenced in my guitar work by Craig Altobello's marquetry, Howard Hitchmough's collectible knives, and Lita Judge's fabulous studio (she's a book illustrator and writer).
Going to art outside of guitar making is a great way to develop original ideas to bring back to guitar making;
