Ladies, Wine & Design

Ladies*, Wine** &
Design, Birmingham.

A conversation series
sparked by Jessica Walsh,
hosted by Kerry & Charlotte

A salon night held monthly, initially limited to eight creative womxn. We’ll wine (or whatever you’re drinking), dine, and have casual conversations on a wide variety of topics relating to creativity, business and life. If you identify as a Birmingham-based female designer and would like to join us, please email Kerry & Charlotte. It’s free and reservations are first come, first served. If you can't get childcare but would like to come along, bring your babs! We're all very friendly. *The event welcomes those who define themselves as female. **The event is held in a café environment - it's not crazy boozy, it's a very laid back catch up over a coffee, tea or a glass of wine/beer if you wish. Yorks also has great food!

6—8, Wed 12 Oct 16 Empowerment

First gathering of women in design in Birmingham. Increasing confidence in our community! Meet-up held at Yorks Bakery Café.

Numbers show that there's a very small percentage of women leading the creative industry. We believe we can change that through mentorship and championing others' work. We love the idea of casual salon nights to collaborate, meet and share ideas with other female designers. So we got in touch with Jessica to bring Ladies, Wine & Design to Birmingham. Until parity exists, we believe events like these are essential.
