Can I go from designing to making?
I'm 29 years old and currently working as a digital designer, but have always had some reservations about the idea of sitting behind a computer for the rest of my career (nothing wrong with it in principle, I just don't think it's for me).
I have always enjoyed building things with my hands, and have gotten a lot of satisfaction from designing and making a couple of small desk lights in my spare time. If this was something that could provide me with financial independence I would jump at the chance, but I have no idea if this is the case, and if it is, I have no idea how I would go about making the transition.
If anyone has any suggestions or advice on the possibilities and practicalities for someone in my situation I would really appreciate it
