Crafts Council Sponsorship to complete Hothouse 5

We are so pleased to announce that this year Jo Gordon, Fera owner and creative director, will be participating in Hothouse 5... a mentoring and business development scheme sponsored by the Crafts Council to support emerging designer makers in the UK. The scheme came so highly recommended by previous participants in the Industry that we were thrilled to be accepted onto the scheme as part of the North Cohort.. which takes place over 6 months with regular meet ups in London and Manchester 

The Induction day was held in London last week and it was great to meet all the other makers... almost 40 in total who will be taking part in other cohorts around the UK. It's fantastic to have the support of the Crafts Council, as such a well respected name in the Industry and for UK makers. Day One was featured on the Hothouse Blog here... which we hope to also be contributing some posts to soon!
