NET WT is an all-girl collective born in Edinburgh founded by Sarah Jones, Eden Hawkins, Gemma Crook and Mina Heydari-Waite. We are each based in a different specialism (fashion, photography and intermedia / fine art) but share an interest in the hand-made and flirting with each other’s disciplines. NET WT. is a platform for collectively run projects, collaboration, and the sharing of skills and research.

In 2014 NET WT organised launch party + exhibition Mother May I and also took part in the ESAF exhibition at Whitespace Gallery. In May 2015 NET WT ran The Open Studio; a pop-up shop, café and residency in a disused parade of shops under Cheriton council estate (Queen’s Crescent, London). The project endeavoured to foster direct links between makers and the communities that surrounded the project’s site. The project was open daily to the public, included evening events and produced multiple publications. We also designed and made work units that included features such as a cutting mat, lightbox and adaptable storage. In June 2016 NET WT hosted (and participated in) a Pecha Kucha event on 'Designing Art' led by intrepid co-founder Gemma Crook. We have also run stalls at Assembly Roxy, The London Art Book Fair at Whitechapel Gallery and various locations in and around Edinburgh College of Art.
