Nick Hussey Rooster Talks April 2020

(POSTPONED) Rooster Talks: How business failure & mental breakdown made me happier (eventually) – With Nick Hussey

Friday 3rd April
8am to 9am

Update at 17/3/2020 – Postponed – New Date TBC

Admission is free
Book via Eventbrite

Running your own business can be an intense and scary experience. Most businesses go bust – fact. That’s what happened to apparel designer Nick Hussey’s first business, Vulpine.

What happens when you’ve thrown everything: physically, emotionally, monetarily into your business, only to watch it all slide away from you?

Now running his second venture out of Glove Factory Studios – FRAHM Jacket, Nick Hussey talks with total honesty, humour and passion about what it’s like to stake everything and lose. Then, how failure and mental collapse eventually has made his life and new business so much better. 

Nick will find a route out of obsession, fear, pressure, workaholism, debt, burnout, shame, collapse and more, with a surprisingly light touch.

April’s Rooster Talk will leave you feeling inspired and hopeful, with practical ways to make your business and home life happier and more efficient.

Join us – free admission plus coffee and croissants at The Field Kitchen.

Robert Shaw Exhibition

‘Not to Scale’ by Robert Shaw – Exhibition

Come on over to see the latest exhibition at The Field Kitchen.
‘Not to Scale’ is a series of architectural illustrations by Robert Shaw.

This series of posters derive from my interest in architecture and show some of my favourite buildings.

This Modernist set highlights heroic architecture from post-war Britain (plus the Arndale Centre, which isn’t that heroic to be honest, though a landmark in Manchester nevertheless).

The series includes Erno Goldfinger’s concrete cliff-face in Poplar – Balfron Tower (the younger sister of Trellick Tower) and Great Arthur House on the Golden Lane Estate.

These are simple renderings, often drawn as the architect imagined them rather in their final built form.


The posters are beautifully printed on fine art paper and available to buy in three sizes: A2/A1/70 x 50mm. The exhibition runs at The Field Kitchen until the end of March 2020.

Robert is a founding partner at Northbank Design, based here at Glove Factory Studios.
