Calling all blind makers! Answered

Hi everyone,

Instructables readers may already know about the community of blind woodworkers from pages like ww4b.org. The university I am affiliated with (OCADU), and my research group are interested in bringing the expertise of all blind woodworkers into more and more classrooms. This includes post secondary institutions (colleges, universities), makerspaces, and anywhere else it might be useful.

We currently have an open dialogue with some professional blind woodworkers, and have enrolled in woodworking classes at non-profit facilities for the visually impaired. But we are looking to learn from anyone else who has first hand knowledge of teaching woodworking (or other kinds of making) to visually impaired students.

If this sounds like you or you are interested, please see the details at this instructables link: https://www.instructables.com/id/Blind-Woodworkin...

If you have more questions, feel free to pm me.

The instructable provides an option to do the survey via phone, but if you want to jump right into the anonymous online survey, here is a link.
