Join us

If you’re an organisation or consultant working with craft in the North West of England, and you’ve a passion for working with others to see craft thrive in the region, please join us! You’d be very welcome.

We want to get more connected with organisations who work in the areas we’ve identified as our priorities, so we’re keen to welcome those who promote craft as an everyday act of joy, work with craft to further mental health and well being, and engage with any aspect of maker support at all career stages.

We’re also aware of the need to better represent all people in the North West, so we’re eager to welcome organisations and individuals who represent marginalised or under-represented groups, including, but not limited to, those who are Black, Asian and minority ethnic, neurodivergent, D/deaf, LGBTQ+ and working class.

To join, or just to find out more, email us at

I’m not a craft organisation or consultant, can I stay in touch?

If you’re a maker, a craft lover, or if you don’t want to dive in right now, we’d love to stay in touch. Sign up to our general mailing list and we’ll send you any news about North West opportunties and events that might interest you.
