Over the last 30 years there have been strong links in Sheffield between women and manual trades. Many women have been self employed, and there have also been some ground breaking initiatives in women’s education.
Join us for an evening of talks kicking off with Liz Kettle, Outreach Worker at WEST. We’ll be discussing women’s role in manual trades and hearing from women who have experience in this field.
We’d love for you to join us afterwards for an informal chat and a glass of wine.
The WEST Fund was established in memory of Ros Wall who was instrumental in setting up a range of local and national projects to encourage women and girls to take up careers in non-traditional roles in science, engineering, technology and the built environment.
Liz Kettle is the part-time outreach and promotion coordinator for WEST. She has worked for the voluntary and community sector in South Yorkshire for over 25 years, specialising in successful communications, publications and outreach.
With the support of the The Year of Making, Line Cut Supply will be hosting a series of inspiring talks and workshops to explore the role of women in manufacturing and industry.
Each month we’ll be concentrating on a theme: trades, technology, manufacturing and engineering. Based in the gallery at the Yorkshire Artspace Persistence Works building and open to the public from 11am -6pm Thursday & Friday and 11am- 5pm on Saturday, we’d love you to pop in and say hello!
