Annual Slow Fashion Show, Lancaster

An afternoon of workshops and market place, with an evening catwalk showcasing local seamstresses, makers and designers. Organised by Gabriella Bavone of Artisan Bazaar.

If you would like to host a stall, run a workshop or submit your designs for the catwalk in 2020 please click here or email: corkerryl@outlook.com.

Weekly Drop In

The Growing Club holds weekly drop-in sessions every Thursday between 12.30 and 14:00. The drop-in is open to all women for general support, so do come and say hello.

We offer support, advice and guidance - or just a brew while browsing our selection of business books in the hub library. Every Thursday volunteers are there to help with general support and put the kettle on.

If you're looking for specific support, or want to know more about how we might be able to help you, you can book a 30 minute 1-2-1 below, to speak with Jane. Alternatively, if you're looking for specialist finance or branding support, our specialists are available each month.

Ask the Accountant

Every first Thursday of the month is 'Ask the Accountant' with Christine Harwood of LA1 Accounting. Drop-in to get some financial advice or support.

Ask about Branding

Every second Thursday of the month is 'Ask about Branding' with Antonella Caputo of Team Sputnik Visual. Drop-in to get some design and marketing support.

Supported by funding from The Galbraith Trust.

"The ladies I have met through the drop in and meet ups are amazing, so encouraging and supportive and it's great to be able to speak to others who are facing or have faced the same struggles or troubles along their journey. I'm very early on in my journey to success and I'm grateful to have Jane and The Growing Club to turn to."
