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.

This month we welcome the beautiful Mischke Lingerie to LWD Edinburgh. She'll join us for an evening of wine, lingerie and lace, taking us through running her business and owning that side hustle. It's a night not to be missed, so get involved!

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.
