Strength in Numbers: The Birth of a Creative Collective
Tuesday, 2nd July 2013 at 8pm - 10pm
This event is in the past.
Join us at our July member meeting, where we will hear from fellow CLBC members, Lindsay Philipson and Sally Gorton about their journey in forming their new venture - an artisan collective called Design Platform.
Design Platform is an exclusive collective of Longridge and Preston-based designer-makers whose produce is original, desirable, of consistently high quality and responsive to seasonal and cultural changes.
Having grown tired of plying their trade at poorly organised 'craft fairs', alongside stalls selling cheap, poor quality and often imported items, they decided they could improve the experience - both for themselves and their customers.
Lindsay and Sally will share an insight into their experience of setting up the collective and turning the vision of a small group of like-minded individuals into successfully marketed and organised Artisan Markets that have found enthusiastic support from within the Longridge community. They will also be bringing with them some examples of their own and fellow artisan's produce.
Join us for what should be an interesting evening. Guests are welcome, so please do invite a friend or colleague.
