FEMALE* 
MAKER MONTH

Im May 2022 Happylab is celebrating Female* Maker Month!

→ Tour of the makerspace with our female* makers

→ Hands-on program: workshops by & for women*

→ Inspiring DIY tutorials to get you started on the maker scene

Women* to the workbench!

The maker community and the associated technologies have so far been male-dominated: only about 20% of makerspace users are women*. As Vienna's largest makerspace, Happylab set itself the goal in May 2022 of getting more women* interested in technology-related making!

Throughout the month, events exclusively by & for women* take place at Happylab: In May 2022, we invite women* to take part in a tour of the open workshop, an exhibition of projects by our female* makers, as well as visit workshops and tutorials by & for women* to try out new things with us and get rid of reservations about digital production technologies.

Eyes on FEMALE* MAKERS!
Exhibition

May 5th - 31st, 2022 

Opening: Thursday May 5th, 2022 starting at 7 pm. All genders welcome! Admission is free of charge!

In the exhibition EYES ON FEMALE* MAKERS, Happylab will present works by female* makers that have been created in the open innovation workshop in recent years. From experimental fashion out of the 3D printer to laser cutter learning materials to a self-developed radio trainer for flight students.


HAnds-on with female* Makers: 
Workshops By & For Women*

Under the motto "Hands on with Female* Makers", women*only workshops on various topics will take place at Happylab in May 2022. The program includes welding in the metal workshop, furniture making with wood, do-it-yourself bicycle repair and an electronics workshop with ethical hardware.

No prior knowledge is required to take part in the workshops. Women* only!

Female* Maker Month in May 2022 marks the starting point for more equal opportunities in technology-related making. By making female* makers and their projects more visible as well as organising women*only workshops, we will of course continue to encourage women* to implement their ideas with digital fabrication technologies.

Female* Maker Month is supported by the Vienna Business Agency. A fund of the City of Vienna.
