Event description

Description

At a time when populism has pushed mainstream politics to the extremes and climate change has reached a critical tipping point, craft is occupying an increasingly crucial role – to engage with those we disagree with or to take refuge within our communities of interest, to reflect the counter-cultures happening around us or to become that vital act of rebellion.

The theme of the 2020 Heritage Crafts Association Conference is Craft Uprising. The keynote speakers will be Patrick Grant (Great British Sewing Bee) talking about disrupting the fast-fashion industry with his social enterprise Community Clothing and Sarah Corbett from the Craftivist Collective talking about the role of craft in change-making.

As well as the main programme of speakers you will also have the opportunity to print your own rebellious messages with Nick Hand's letterpress bicycle, bring your craft items for a pop-up gallery on the theme of 'Powerful Objects', and network with other makers from around the UK.

Programme

Please note: We will work hard to ensure the same speakers are in attendance for the postponed (due to coronavirus) date of 11 October, but this cannot be guaranteed at this stage.

Tickets cost £28 for HCA members and £38 for non-members, with discounts if you become a member at the time of purchase, bring a friend or are a student. In addition, 20 bursary places have been made available to those who would otherwise struggle to attend - for availability please email mary@heritagecrafts.org.uk.
