We are excited to announce that Wilson's Republic has gone large.

From designing textiles to engineering gearboxes, Huddersfield has a rich history of world class design running through it.  Wilson's Republic #6 aims to celebrate these roots by looking to the future. Set over the course of a day we will bring together the design community to chat, work, listen and learn. 

It's a full-on design conference for Huddersfield and it's on Thursday 5th October at Bates Mill.

We have a series of inspiring guest speakers and a programme of seminars and workshops chosen to help you run your creative business. Whether you are an established agency, freelancer or student, topics will cover working with the design process, accounting, intellectual property, business development and more.

There will be space to work and the opportunity to get one-to-one feedback on your portfolio by a professional. 

We have more info coming soon and registration is open shortly. Watch this space!!!
