Crafts Council announces makers selected for Hothouse

The 39 selected makers will start the Hothouse programme in 2015

We're pleased to announce the 39 makers selected to start Hothouse in February 2015.

Hothouse has quickly established itself as a gold-standard professional development programme for new makers. Over the last four years 122 participants have completed the programme with 100% of last year’s cohort of 38 saying that the programme had enabled them to think differently about the direction of their career.
