Celebrating Women in Craft & Design

This Girl Does What?

This Girl Makes is a result of there being very few female designer-makers, who are regarded as household names. As the demand for younger furniture makers steadily grows, the necessity to inspire and cultivate a new generation of creatives is vital for its survival in the UK. Whether the emerging talent is male or female, it is crucial for the success of the industry that it is representative of both sexes, primarily for the sake of diversity and variety of ideas.

This Girl Makes is an inclusive blog, which aims to unite designers, and celebrate women within the art, design, and craft industries. Whether you are a creative director looking to expand your workforce; a course leader seeking fresh talent; an aspiring student, This Girl Makes will have something to offer you. The aim is to remove the outdated concept of gendered job roles, and promote craft equally to all young people, in a relevant and relatable way.
