HOTHOUSE 2019: MAKERS ANNOUNCED
We’re thrilled to announce the 26 brilliant craft businesses that have been selected for Hothouse 2019!
Set up by the Crafts Council in 2011, Hothouse is a six month programme designed to help makers cultivate their creativity and develop their business know-how with equal measure.
Throughout the course, makers will travel across the UK completing a series of workshops including finance, self-presentation, marketing, business growth and creative thinking, with the added bonus of mentorship and 1:1 support.
