Prototype is a feminist makerspace born from the desire to prototype the kind of world we want to live in. It was co-founded by Erin Oldynski and E.Louise Larson to give feminists of all genders a place to make things, fail quickly, and find the support to start all over again.
Prototype will be hosting a workshop at SPAN Pittsburgh on Sep 15.
In this workshop, Oldynski and Larson will lead small physical design challenges to illustrate some of Prototype’s larger social ideas. Participants will use small materials, hand tools, and Prototype’s BoXZYs (a 3-in-1 laser/3D-printer/mill).
A really intimidating part of any maker or craft community is just sort of finding an entry point into the conversation and knowing you’re allowed to be there.Prototype
