We’re delighted to announce that we’ll be participating in this year’s MAKE:SHIFT conference at the Museum of Science and Industry in November. The conference is organised by the Crafts Council and explores the importance of craft and innovation to the future of making. This year’s themes are: social innovation, sustainability and healthcare and well-being. The practices presented will include robotics, smart materials, bio design, and connected wearables alongside more traditional craft disciplines.

We will be running handling sessions on Thursday 10 November with objects selected from our Design and Process Innovation collection, including a mycellium bowl designed by Maurizio Montalti who will be speaking at the conference.
