SIT Select : The Maker & the Retailer

SpeakersThe Maker and the Retailer

SIT Select will be staging a day of discussions and debate on Wednesday October 15th at Heal’s Quarter Cafe in Tottenham Court Road, London.

The Maker and the Retailer looks at the vital but thorny issue of combining craft with commerce. The first of the three sessions sees internationally acclaimed ceramicist Peter Ting (whose Flutter design has been used by Oasis Stores for one of their A/W 2014 fashion collections) who will be discussing the role commerce playing in fostering innovative craft and design with textile artist/designer Ptolemy Mann and Heal’s Creative Director Carmel Allen.
In the second, Gemma Waggett, RCA graduate and founder of e-store Nothing by Navy, will talk about getting started, her next career steps and reveal her exciting new work.
Finally, Guy Hills, co-founder of Dashing Tweeds, will tell the story of this exciting, innovative and distinctly idiosyncratic textile and menswear company.

Ticket price also includes lunch.
Times: 10.45am – 3pm
Venue: Heal’s Quarter Cafe, Tottenham Court Rd, London W1T 7LQ.
Tickets:  £32 and can be purchased via SIT
