Jamie-Lee is a creator, facilitator and educator.

Jamie-Lee uses 3D printing across her broad practice: as a tool for designing, building and manufacturing, and as a vehicle for creating inclusive learning experiences for different people. 3D printing is a making process that can produce minimal waste material and has the ability to use recycled plastics, supporting a sustainable, zero waste approach to generating products. Working with people is a key focus within her practice, Jamie-Lee creates her own tools and innovative contraptions to encourage people to playfully learn about the benefits and environmental advantages of 3D printing in contemporary design.
