On 7 October 2020, the Danish cMDF held another workshop activity, this time focusing on expanding the use-case demographic, by holding a women makers’ workshop. With a total of 14 attendees, the Danish cMDF partners presented the iPRODUCE project and discussed opportunities for developing the space to support wider skills and crafts.

The participants were enthusiastic and highlighted aspects that would help them engage with maker spaces. Among the key points they indicated that:

  • a set of open courses could be a way to bring different groups to the space;
  • selective pricing could also help the initial start-up setup;
  • being part of a network gives a lot of opportunity and inspiration;
  • it is important to have a clean and organised space;
  • access to a support network database can help accelerate production;
  • access to cheap or free materials for prototypes.

This event will be followed up with a day making workshop, date yet to be set, to give continuation to the collaboration and exploration of opportunities in regards to women entrepreneurship as part of the Danish cMDF business developments.
