Ethan & Ethel

It doesn’t happen often, but a new family has moved into Ginnunga Gap. I haven’t seen much of Maw and Paw Maker, but their children, Ethan and Ethel, have already started hanging around the Unit One workshop.

The twins are 15 years old, and just starting out to make things. At Unit One we’re going to be writing some posts that will help them figure out what to do in a workshop. We want to make sure they learn how to “Do It Ourselves” safely.
