To scope our investigation, we used the DIY space as an area of interest as well as an avenue to study how hand skills are learned. Our three main areas of interest for research were:
How do users currently learn DIY and craft skills?
What types of tools are currently used to learn?
What measures do experts take to create content for learners?
Our primary and secondary research consisted of interviewing with local experts and content creators as well as looking into what current tools and services are used today to learn DIY skills.
