Meet Louisa the Table Saw – Making creativity more inclusive
They may look tough, but don’t judge table saws like Lou by their appearance – with the help of experienced volunteers, anyone can learn how to use it. Louisa’s versatile and productive qualities come to life at our Friday night workshops which provide a safe space for women and non-binary makers. Your donation will help those looking to express themselves in the workshop, and ensure Lou continues to support them to do it with pride.
Louisa and the gang have been making Edinburgh more inclusive since July 2019. Can you help make more diversity possible?
