feminism. making. community.

Everything is a prototype

What started as a personal studio for co-founders Erin Oldynski and E.Louise Larson is now a feminist makerspace. Prototype was born from the idea that we are constantly prototyping the kind of world we want to live in. As two women who love making, educating, and Pittsburgh, this is our first prototype for the future. We see Prototype as a space where feminists of all genders are welcome to make things, fail quickly, and find the support to start all over again. 

Prototype is a recipient of the 100 Days of US grant through the Sprout Fund.

Prototypers have access to shared tools, space, events, knowledge, and support. All genders and disciplines are welcome to join.
