Ladies, Wine & Design

Ladies, Wine &
a bit of Design

A conversation series
founded by Jessica Walsh.
Hosted by Juli Vignette

A monthly salon night connecting creative women* in the North East of England. We’ll wine**, dine, and have casual conversations on a wide variety of topics relating to creativity, business, and life. Most events are free of charge and on a first-come, first-served basis. If you’re a female* creative and would like to join an event please sign up for the newsletter, or join us on facebook and instagram. Additionally, please get in touch via DM if you'd like to collaborate, host us in your space, teach a workshop, or be a guest speaker.
*Our space is inclusive of all women, non-binary, agender and gender non-conforming people. Self-definition is at the sole discretion of that individual. If you feel you could benefit from a space meant for people who do not identify as men to share ideas and collaborate, you are welcome. **Alcohol is entirely optional; you can drink tea, coffee or whatever you like!

30 January 2019, 6pm Ladies in the Florist Design Studio (Wildflower Ouseburn)

An opportunity to meet up with like-minded women in an unusual setting, and as always, the perfect way to gather knowledge and learn a new skill.

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.
