Shemakes has three "learning paths" as well as two other groups of people who we involve in our activities. In line with project goals, the "learning path" modules (the first three below) have specifically been developed with women in mind and they serve to encourage girls and women to learn skills or get involved in areas more typically associated with boys and men. In particular, these skills create a relationship between technology and textiles, working from the very basics of using laser cutters and creating soft circuits to more complex projects like digital modular design or the creation of new materials from resin or other biomaterials. The additional two areas you can explore below address whole communities, who explore gender issues in the textile and clothing industry together to create a roadmap towards improvement, and entrepreneurship, which helps women embarking on their own business paths to be more successful.
All of our activities are detailed in our Open Toolkit to make them replicable in your own laboratory. Although developed for girls and women, the activities are of course open to anyone and everyone.
