Make Your Future is a hands-on education programme connecting traditional craft with digital technologies to ignite a passion for craft in young people. Through supporting teachers, making use of local craft skills and
creating opportunities for work and study in craft, it pioneers an approach that strengthens the position of
making skills as a cross-curricular bridge between art and science.
