Make Your Future is a Crafts Council project that aims to reignite a passion for making in schools.
Birmingham schools have worked with Birmingham City University’s world-class School of Jewellery to explore techniques ranging from saw piercing to electro-etching and 3D printing. In Yorkshire, schools have been paired with Leeds University's School of Design and Leeds Arts University to experiment with textiles techniques including hand-dyeing, screen printing, and CAD. At Central St Martin’s, West London schools have developed new ceramics techniques ranging from hand-building and glazing to innovative digital processes.
Professional makers work alongside teachers to deliver cutting-edge workshops in schools, putting under-used resources to work and offering students new experiences of making.
