The Crafts Council wishes to commission a set of six case studies and four short films of makers delivering craft experiences for a Crafts Council guide. The work will take place over the summer and be completed by the end of September. The consultants may be different people, but they would need to work alongside each other.
Drawing on the Crafts Council’s The Market for Craft report the Guide will set out how the craft experience economy has expanded recently, what we know about makers’ and participants’ involvement and the diversity of delivery it may include.
In an increasingly challenging market, the Guide is intended to assist makers in flexing their businesses to the new economic environment, mitigating the twin impacts of Covid 19 and Brexit, whilst taking advantage of an enhanced consumer demand for tourism and hands-on experiences. The Guide will be an online resource promoted throughout our networks.
