Ladies, Wine & Design

LWD Edinburgh

A conversation series
with Fee Sheal

A salon night held monthly will be limited to 10 creative ladies. We’ll drink wine (or any beverage of your choice!) and have casual conversations on a wide variety of topics relating to creativity, business, and life. If you identify as a female creative* and would like to join, please email us. It’s free and reservations are first come, first served. * Our meetings are inclusive and supportive spaces for all women (trans, intersex and cis) and all nonbinary, agender and gender variant people. Self-definition is at the sole discretion of that individual. If you choose to come to our events it's because you feel that you are included by our gender inclusion policy, and therefore you are more than welcome. If you have any queries regarding our gender inclusion policy, please don’t hesitate to ask.

January 23rd, 6pm Charley's Chalk

Before becoming a sign writer and chalkboard artist Charley worked in a London ad agency as a copywriter and creative. After realising that office life wasn’t for her, Charley packed up her bags and moved to bonnie Scotland to start Charley’s Chalk. There she met her good friend and sign writing guru, the late Robin Abbey. With his know-how and encouragement, she went on design and create signage for some of Edinburgh’s best and brightest.⁠

Charley will be taking us through her career to date as we take a look at her killer chalkboard work and signage of dreams.

February 13th, 6pm Vows & Vino

Join us this Galentine's Day for a LWD wedding extravaganza!

Our very first panel event dedicated to the business of weddings! From the dress to the venue, photographer to the favours we'll be talking about what it takes to help make someone's 'big day' a reality, with the help of our fabulous panel (and a vino or two!).

March 28th, 10am-11pm LWD SCOTLAND

We’re beyond excited to announce the first-ever LWD Scotland event!⁠⠀
We've teamed up with our pals @LWDglasgow to bring you a day of creativity, powered by kick-ass women. We'll have workshops across both cities during the day and then settle in for an evening with four incredible speakers in Edinburgh. ⁠⠀
Opening Soon

Many women study design yet the creative world seems to be dominated by men. We want to change that. Let's encourage each other, both within Edinburgh and across the world to champion female creatives so we can see more female CEOs, Creative Directors and Entrepreneurs. Here are some things that inspired us if you want to learn more:

Teach Girls Bravery: Not Perfection
Survival Tips for Women in Motion Design
Why We Have Too Few Women Leaders
Network & Hustle: The Key Skills for Women in Technology

Numbers show that there's a very small percentage of women leading the creative industry. However, we find the people we're most inspired by are often other talented ladies. Here are a few women we have come to admire! Email us if you want to nominate someone for this list.
