About this talk

When we think of manufacturing,  the dominant image is factories and a sweaty, dirty environment.

But for decades women have been involved in micro-manufacturing, often innovative, sometimes exporting, mostly over looked, and certainly adding to the local economy.

The Growing Club is a social-enterprise based in Lancaster, designing and delivering employment and enterprise skills and support for women.

In 2018 a group of women who had been through The Growing Club programmes came together as women in micro-manufacturing, to network,support each other and access resources.

Some of those women have been invited to a fireside chat with Jane Binnion.

Amanda Gallagher. Owner and designer of leather handbags at Tinbox Angel, designing and creating each handbag with my own hands using old and new techniques. Tinbox Angel developed from a small hobby to a successful business employing three people with help and supported from organisations like The Growing Club.  https://www.tinboxangel.com  

Tamsin Coxhill. Firespiral Slings makes and retails uniquely designed, naturally ergonomic woven wrap slings, blankets and accessories that are ethically woven in Lancashire, UK.  https://www.firespiralslings.co.uk/
