Two wonderful, thought- provoking days about innovation, collaboration, sustainability, health and well being and social innovation. It was an amazing opportunity to meet and exchange ideas with a wide range people, experts in their fields and a diverse group of makers, all passionate about what they do.
You can find out much more on the Crafts Council website. Look out for some associated events coming up in other regions and of course for the next Make:Shift conference in 2018!
I’m looking forward to going to Make:Shift, the 2 day conference in Manchester next week, exploring craft and innovation.

Disappointed that I can’t stay on and go to Maker Assembly at Madlab in Manchester on Sat 12th. November
I was lucky enough to see two works by Yinka Shonibare at the Turner Contemporary Gallery in Margate and the new exhibition, J M W Turner, Adventures in Colour – both wonderful!
What a wonderful morning visiting this new gallery in Kings Lynn!
Sunlight & Gravity – work by Roger Ackling and Richard Long is on exhibition until 30th October 2016.

There are some stunning galleries at the show at Alexandra Palace and one I loved was Findings shown by Alice Fox.
Her exhibits are thoughtfully displayed in a tranquil and serene space and a ‘must see’.
