Line Cut Supply – Women of Steel
Posted on 08.12.2016
Aimee Harrison from Line Cut Supply is passionate about empowering, motivating and encouraging women to get making. Line Cut Supply produces made-to-order women’s workwear from their studio based in Sheffield, but this winter they have been in residence in Yorkshire Artspace’s Persistence Work’s Gallery. You can drop in to their pop-up shop and making space between 11am -6pm Thursday & Friday and 11am- 5pm on Saturday, to have a chat, see Aimee working and check out a variety of different supplies, including women’s workwear, handmade objects and tools from local makers.
Alongside this, Line Cut Supply have been hosting a series of free talks and workshops to explore the role of women in manufacturing and industry. Themes include trades, technology, manufacturing and engineering, with the aim to give as many people as possible the chance to get involved. To date these have included the opportunity to make a window box, program a plant sensor and hear from several inspirational women who have shared their experiences of working in different industries.
Talks and workshops continue in to January, so keep a look out for more information about this soon.
The project is part of the Year of Making, a celebration of all forms of making in the city and region. It was supported by the Sheffield Culture Consortium, Yorkshire ArtSpace and the Making Ways artist development programme through Arts Council England Ambition for Excellence.
