On 4th August 2020 Caroline Ash delivered her hugely successful masterclass on ‘What Makes a Manufacturer Ethical’.

As part of the N17 Creative Callings project Caroline divulged her extensive knowledge and experience in garment manufacturing to an audience of new business start-ups all eager to learn the first steps of manufacturing their designs ethically.
