Just written a blog post for the Hothouse 5 blog about our first sessions. Here's the link if you fancy reading about what the makers on the Hothouse programme this year have learnt so far.
Here's a photo of the wonderful Northern Cohort after our first Hothouse session in Stockport. Ceramicists, textile designers, furniture makers, jewellers and surface designers all looking quite chilly and ready for lunch.
Thanks to the lovely Jessie for making me the 'Skilled Person of the Week' on Pandora's Toolbox. If you haven't heard of this gem of a website yet, go and take a look! On the site you can share your skills with and learn skills from other people. Its a great idea, I'm hoping an accordion player will sign up so I can learn to play... In return I can offer steam bending knowledge, or German conversation skills! It is still in its early stages, so I'm excited to see how people will swap their skills!
