Launch of Crafts Council Manifesto

Last week the Crafts Council invited 150 guests to the House of Commons for the launch of their manifesto for art craft education. Research showed that students had less opportunity to experience learning through making with their hands, using clay or textiles or other such materials. More and more universities are shutting down their ceramics or textiles courses.
This is a huge campaign by the crafts council to turn this around… The Head of Policy and research came to St Marylebone to talk to our Art Textiles students about why they felt these subjects were important to them. One student made such an impression that she was invited to help launch the manifesto at the House of Commons. She wrote a superb speech and spoke to an audience of ministers, MPs, Arts
funders, Makers and Galleries. She presented with confidence and spoke so eloquently!
