Make Works Team
The people behind Make Works
Make Works is made up of a small team distributed between Glasgow, Edinburgh and London. We frequently collaborate with freelancers for specific projects and meet with our fantastic advisory group on a regular basis.

Fi Scott | Founder
Fi is a manufacturing geek and the founder of Make Works, which she started in her final year studying product design at Glasgow School of Art. She spends her time between design and strategy for the organisation, but her favourite thing to do is still visiting the makers, manufacturers and industrial estates of Scotland.
Helen Voce | Regions Co-Ordinator
Helen is a supporter of creative people and creative industries. She works locally, nationally, internationally and voluntarily. Helen designs, produces and facilitates opportunities, initiatives and spaces in which practitioners, microbusinesses, projects and organisations can realise their full creative and professional potential.
Helen joined the team to co-ordinate the regional programme for Make Works to be both a Caretaker and Ranger for the Make Works regions. The role involves supporting groups both nationally and internationally to join and have a positive experience working with the Make Works project.

Lizzie Malcolm and Daniel Powers, Rectangle Design | Web Experiments
We first worked with Lizzie and Dan in 2015 when we asked them to look at ways we could improve our browing the Make Works database. Since then, they've helped us develop new ways we can work with our API to take our database to the rest of the web, such as the Make Works Extension project.
