Ladies Wine Design

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

Ambiguous Implements

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.
