Craft across Continents: The Heritage Crafts Association Conference, Saturday 7 May 2016

posted 19 Apr 2016, 03:38 by Bill Crumbleholme
The Heritage Crafts Association (HCA) is holding its annual conference on Saturday 7 May 2016 as part of London Craft Week.

This year, our speakers include the Great Pottery Throwdown judges, Kate Malone and Keith Brymer Jones, who will be telling us about life behind-the-scenes on the programme and their plans for series 2, and Genevieve Sioka, the Artisan & Craft, Regional, Iconic & Experience Buyer for the National Trust’s retail outlets. The conference will also feature an opportunity for one-to-one sessions with Genevieve during the lunch hour where she can advise you on your craft and the National Trust.

I was wondering if the conference would be of interest to the members of the Dorset Pottery Group and whether you could kindly pass on the information below to your members? I have also attached a conference flyer for your convenience. 

Many thanks in advance

Greta
