Venue: Gallery Cafe

7pm to 9pm | £10

It's National Wool Week - Ethical Knitwear Discussion Panel
No Nasties Knitwear, Without Sacrificing on Style

Join Offset Warehouse for a panel discussion with three leaders in the Knitwear Industry - Katie Jones from Katie Jones Knit, Alison Baker from Ally Bee Knitwear and Timothy Andrews from Knit Works London. Learn about Katie Jones' foray into Make It Yourself knitwear, how Alison Baker overcame the challenge of sourcing ethical and sustainable natural fibres for her knitwear line, and Timothy Andrews' leading industry tips on the construction and design of knitwear.

This panel discussion will focus on the challenges that brands face when producing sustainable and ethical knitwear and how they overcome this, ethical alternatives to mass produced products, issues with quality control, and ways you can diversify your income streams. Our speakers have a width and breadth of knowledge, that will help you build or establish your knitwear business, or merely grow your knowledge on the knitwear industry itself.

The Panel will be chaired by Charlie Bradley Ross (above) founder of Offset Warehouse and Offset Warehouse: The Members' Club. Charlie sources and develops sustainable textiles from around the world and works with designers to create products that are more environmentally and socially responsible.


Format of The Evening - We will kick off the panel discussion at about 7.20pm, but if you're running a bit late, please don't worry about missing it or disturbing the discussions - just join in. You will hear from each of the speakers in turn a little about their brand and what they do, and then we will dive right in to asking them questions, with time for audience questions too.

Price

All this for just £10. Or discounted if you are a member of The Members’ Club.
