I am delighted to officially be able to announce that I am part of the Crafts Council UKs Hothouse 2011. Hothouse provides emerging makers (those defined as being within two years of setting up a practice) with a programme of focussed, intensive business skills and creative development, complimented with 1:1 support over a six month period. I met everyone last week at the Design Council in London. It looks like its going to be an exciting few months ahead. We now have a facebook page so please 'like' us to see what we are up to. Check out the rest of the makers: Amy Bear, Aimee Betts, Eleanor Bolton, Emma Bradbury, Kevin Brook, Hannah Felicity Dennis, Jane Dzisiewski, Amelia Fever, Lucy Jane Foakes, Helen Foot, Jasmin Giles, Anna Glasbrook, Mahtab Hanna, Zehava Hashai-Spellman, Tortie Hoare, Anna Collette Hunt, Zoe Lloyd, Hanna Nielsen, Elizabeth Peers, Carly Petit-Taylor, Helen Smith, Rhian Solomon, Thorody, Ellen Thomas, Victoria Walker, Sarah Warsop andJanice Zethraeus.
