Women in Lutherie aims to create a safe, open space for women and female-identifying luthiers to empower women and girls at the bench worldwide. Founded by Jennifer Creadick and Jeemin Kim during the pandemic as a series of online Zoom chats, the group has since expanded to continue making space and support for women in the industry. Florence-based luthier Paris Andrew spoke to online editor Davina Shum about the shared experiences of female luthiers that drives the motivation for the group, as well as why the community is necessary, plus the group’s plans for the future.
