1 in 5 designers in the UK are women. Women make up just 22% of the design workforce; even though 7 out of 10 students taking design at A-level are women.
This Girl Makes is an on and offline community of designers and makers with events and DIY kits that celebrate and promote women in craft and design.
This Girl Makes is the perfect antidote with practical workshops and projects promoting craft and design skills and opportunities. They have cultivated a community that offers skill sharing, confidence building and a sense of empowerment for women and girls. During International Women's Day Banbury you can get involved with This Girl Makes too.
