Studying Craft – Crafts Council research launch, Margate

The Crafts Council’s research report Studying Craft: trends in craft education and training launches in February 2014 with a series of four events to present the key findings.

The events will explore how art, craft and design education and training, from key stage 4 to post-graduate level, has changed over the last five years, how participation patterns are shifting, and where new courses are emerging.

Following presentation of the findings there will be the opportunity for discussion and networking, and the chance to shape arguments about craft education and training for the future.

The events are for makers, policy makers, research specialists, and education institutions. All events are free but must be booked in advance. Book using Eventbrite.
