Critical Making Lab Members at Ladies Learning Code 3D Printing Workshop

Critical Making Lab members Dan Southwick and Gabby Resch recently mentored a 3D printing workshop for Toronto non-profit Ladies Learning Code. LLC is an organization that runs workshops for women (and men) who want to learn beginner-friendly computer programming and other technical skills in a social and collaborative way. Over the past few years, they’ve established a number of chapters across Canada, a thriving girls’ program called Girls Learning Code, and a permanent workshop space in Toronto. Gabby has previously instructed one of their 3D printing events, so it was a real eye-opener to see how far they’ve come over the past year in developing the infrastructure and mentoring support to expose the broader public to this technology.
