What is THREAD?

THREAD was born out of the desire to bring the creative community of Bristol and the South West together through a series of inspiring talks, workshops and events.

Tired of attending sterile, one-dimensional design talks, we wanted to create a platform to help inspire and connect creatives from all walks of life. The events are designed and curated to facilitate discussion and encourage collaboration.

Alongside talks and workshops we'll also be staging smaller events throughout the year at different venues around Bristol, so please sign-up to our newsletter or follow us on Twitter to stay in touch with all things THREAD.
