Abstract

In this paper we describe early findings from a series of digital fabrication workshops run with disabled people as part of the In the Making project. These workshops aimed to engage more disabled people with digital fabrication and explore how they might take advantage of it to improve their own lives. Our formative findings point towards a model of breadth, depth and height, indicating different levels and methods of engagement.
