Make Your Future

Make Your Future is a hands-on programme that connects traditional craft with digital technologies.

Make Your Future will ignite a passion for craft in young people, working with Higher Education Institutions, cultural partners, secondary schools and makers to mash up traditional and digital making skills in the classroom.

The programme will pioneer an approach that strengthens the position of making skills as a cross-curricular bridge in schools, creating new opportunities for work and study in ceramics, metalwork, textiles and digital craft. 

Make Your Future will deliver a hands-on programme that puts making into the hands of pupils and craft at the heart of their future.

In the 2016/17 school year we’ll begin delivering Make Your Future working with schools in Birmingham, London (Brent, Hammersmith and Fulham) and Bradford & Wakefield. If your school has an interest in taking part, please contact us via participation@craftscouncil.org.uk

Make Your Future is built on the legacy of Crafts Council’s Firing Up programme that ran from 2010-13.
