This International Women's Day, we're packing our pliers and heading to the sea-side to explore themes around feminism, equality, and creativity with a little help from our friends...
Joining forces with POW! Thanet as part of their International Women's Day weekend celebrations, head to the Tatty Devine Takeover, housed in a former Woolworths, to be one of the first to shop our new Fawcett Society x Tatty Devine collection. Meet members of our Kent-based production team, try your hand at out jewellery making workshops, hear from fellow trail-blazing female creatives and join Tatty Devine Co-Founders Rosie Wolfenden and Harriet Vine for a very special POW! Bunting Necklace Workshop.
