For many makers, the cost of equipment can really limit the scope of their projects. Across North America and parts of Europe, community tool banks have been popular for years .They allow creatives to realise the full potential of their imaginations by lending a range of kit and providing the expertise and support to use them.
Earlier this year Chris Hellawell launched the Edinburgh Tool Library, the first of its kind in the UK. ETL loans basic tools, offers expert advice and demonstrations, and provides employability training for young people in the city.
Come and meet Chris and the team at the Mini Maker Faire, learn about the services on offer and even offer your own expertise. The Edinburgh Tool Library provides the resources letting you dream big!
