Ladies, Wine & Design

Ladies, Wine &
a bit of Design

A conversation series
for creatives based in Leicester
sparked by Jessica Walsh

A salon night held monthly, initially limited to six creative women. We’ll wine (or whatever's your tipple!), dine, and have casual conversations on a wide variety of topics relating to creativity, business and life. If you’re a female student or creative would like to join us, please email Steph. It’s free and reservations are first come, first served. If you can't get childcare but would like to come along, please feel free to bring along your tiddlywinks!
*The event welcomes those who define themselves as female.
**The event is held in at De Montort University within the Design Studios - it's a very laid back catch up over a coffee, tea or a glass of wine/beer if you wish.

Date / Time TBC A bed of roses

First gathering of women in design in Leicester. Increasing confidence in our community! Meet-up held will be held at De Montfoft University in the Graphic Design Studio.

Jessica Walsh started Ladies, Wine & Design in New York after doing a lot of thinking and reading on why there are so few women creative directors. She believes we can change that through mentorship and championing others' work. We couldn't agree more, and we also think it would be fun to meet other lady creatives and inspire those who are just starting out within the field, so we reached out to her and Ladies, Wine & Design Leicester was created!
