Fi Scott

Fi is the founder of Make Works, an independent design organisation that facilitates and celebrates local manufacturing and making

In 2013, she embarked on the Make Works Tour, a 90-day road trip across the whole of Scotland finding and filming 120 factories. In 2014, this information was used to launch a digital directory of industry in Scotland for use by artists and designers, enabling the fabrication of work more easily.

Make Works also run residency programmes, cultural projects and produces a bi-annual publication. Fi is inspired by the value of making, local production and craftsmanship, fascinated by materials and machines. She trained as a product designer at Glasgow School of Art and has previously worked as a designer in Philadelphia, Brooklyn and Scotland for companies such as DMFD, Design Philadelphia Festival, Ben Dawson Furniture and MAKLab.
