TALK: ‘THIS GIRL MAKES’ Hattie Speed
Wednesday 15 August 2018, free event
Hattie AKA ‘THIS GIRL MAKES’ is a young designer-maker with a love for natural materials. Her work encourages others to assert more value on curiosity and play through the objects they use, as she strives to redefine traditional archetypes of furniture in a playful and honest way. Hattie’s THIS GIRL MAKES blog and workshops, her craft, and public speaking provide opportunities to pass on practical skills and knowledge, as well as opening up new channels for discussion. She will also be running two-hour children’s workshops on Thursday 16 and Friday 17 August in making wooden stools as part of our Wood Festival.
Hattie was selected for the LINLEY Summer School 2017, was shortlisted for the 2017 Wood Awards Student. She champions women’s roles in the crafts and furniture making industries. A must for aspiring makers of all genders and ages.
