Ladies, Wine & Design

Wine & a
bit of Design

A conversation series with
creative ladies in St. Pete, Florida

Female creatives are stronger together! Our free monthly salon night hosts small groups of creative women for casual conversations in an intimate wine-fueled setting. Topics vary by month, and we'll cover a diverse list of subjects relating to creativity, business, and life. If you're a female creative and you'd like to join us, sign up for our mailing list here. All venues and partner businesses are female owned or operated. If you'd like to host us in your space, partner with us, or lead a discussion, please reach out. — Follow us! Instagram & Facebook

Join Dana Householder and Emily Seitz, creatives at SPARK Branding House, to discuss the importance of defining your voice and how to give it a style as unique as you—no buzzwords allowed.

Numbers show that there's a very small percentage of women in creative leadership roles. However, we find the people we're inspired by most are often other talented females. Here are a few local ladies we have admired, worked with, or had our eye on! Email us if you want to nominate someone for this list.
