Join us for our Weekend House Party! kicking off at 6pm on Friday we have live music, tasty BBQ, DJ's, dancing and fun times. We are totally kid friendly until 9pm so if you want to bring the little ones down on Saturday to watch the Loxely Brass band perform in the courtyard we're sure it will be a belter! In the evenings we get a bit more grown up with autistic sets and Soul Professor playing strictly vinyl sounds coming all the way from Amsterdam.
Ladies, Wine & Design: Sheffield A conversation series by Jessica Walsh, hosted by Jess Yates
Ladies, Wine Design was started by Jessica Walsh after writing this article as an initiative to foster female creativity. Only a tiny percent of creative directors are women, and LW&D wants to help change this through mentorship circles, portfolio reviews, and creative meet-ups. In less than a year of launching, we've spread to chapters in over 75 cities all over the world. In New York, LW&D is a monthly salon night limited to a small group of creative women. We’ll wine, 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 and would like to join, please do email us. It's free to join!
Ambiguous Implements is a group exhibition of contemporary works that playfully reconsider the familiar objects of our day to day domestic life. The exhibition brings together 17 practitioners from the fields of design, jewellery, ceramics, metalwork and sculpture. Re-thinking the tools we use for eating, grooming, cooking and cleaning, the exhibiting artists have employed and subverted traditional craft techniques, reframed existing tools in new sculptural assemblages, or given seemingly banal objects new functions and effects. The collection of work presents a twist on the familiar, bringing new perspectives to bare on the objects that populate contemporary domestic life.
Join us for an evening with Thomas Thwaites for his talk — GoatMan, or a holiday from being human.
Thomas Thwaites is a designer whose works variously explore economic, philosophical or techno-social across many subjects; biology, economics, philosophy, and materials science. In his project, GoatMan, he designed an exoskeleton that would enable him to ‘become’ a goat: “I tried to become a goat to escape the angst inherent in being a human.
The Body Electric explores how we design and engineer our own bodies. Prosthetics were once the domain of specialist professionals but a new generation of makers, designers, hackers and everyday people are finding their own ways to adapt their bodies to the environment, explore new forms of creativity, and reflect on what it means to be human.
