Women of Steel : A series of talks & workshops

This winter as part of the Year of Making 2016, Line Cut Supply are hosting Women of Steel, a series of talks and workshops taking place in The Gallery at Persistence Works, aimed at progressing conversations around the role of women in manufacturing and industry.

Each month they'll be focusing on a particular theme; October explored 'trades'; Liz Kettle from WEST Sheffield gave an informative talk on the role of women in manual trades. This was followed by a basic woodworking session from Sue Clarke in which participants made beautiful window boxes, and an electronics workshop with Joanne Armitage.

The next workshop will be held on January 26th - this one will be Introduction to 3D modelling/printing with Autodesk Fusion 360

Tickets can be found here.

The next talk will be held on Thursday 19th January 6pm - 7.30pm. Speakers will be Carol Morris: Deputy Head of the School of Engineering and Innovation at The Open University and Zoe Laughlin: Founder/director of the Institute of Making and the Materials Library project.

Tickets can be found here.
