If you’re a female creative or student in any discipline, and would like to join, please email us at lwd_ncl@juliv.uk It’s free and reservations are first come, first served. We’ll notify you when we release an event you’re interested in and we also publish dates on our social channels.

Tips on design best practice in the digital environment from a graphic-designer-turned-UX-designer.
Special guest: Danielle Stone

Numbers show there's a very small percentage of women leading the creative industry. We believe we can change that through mentorship and championing others' work. Initially, we loved the idea of relaxed salon nights to collaborate, meet and share with other creative ladies. So we reached out to Jessica Walsh to bring Ladies, Wine & Design to the Toon.
