Crafted – applications open

craftedCalling all makers – applications are now invited  for the marvellous Walpole British Luxury Crafted programme

Established in 2007 by  Programme Chairman Guy Salter and Walpole British Luxury with support from Arts and Business, the aim of the programme is to help up to 10 highly skilled contemporary and traditional designer makers to develop the commercial side of their business though a year-long programme of workshops and one-to-one mentoring from expert luxury leaders such as Guy Salter, Mark Henderson of Gieves and Hawkes and The New Craftsmen, Robert Ettinger of Ettinger and the Rug Company’s Christopher Sharp.

And if that isn’t enough to tempt you to apply, the successful applicants will also be invited to take part in ‘Crafted’,  an exhibition of work from 35 current and former members of the programme  which  will run at the Royal Academy of Arts from 3rd-5th April. The show is curated  by ceramicist Peter Ting, a man who will also be taking part in the  day of talks we have put together to complement our exhibition ‘Designing Craft, Making for Pleasure’ which opens at the Wilson Art Gallery and Museum, Cheltenham on 4th April.

Applications for Walpole British Luxury Crafted programme must be in by Friday February 14th so don’t delay.
