With the help of Sisterhood, School 21 Sisters set up a pop-up design studio within Makerversity, a fabrication lab made up of Europe’s most exciting community of emergent maker businesses. Surrounded by inspiration and London’s most creative makers and thinkers the girls joined Sisterhood on our mission to boost confidence in young girls through creativity.
