On Wednesday I was at Arts Council England in London to meet Phil Cave and Clara Goldsmith from Arts Council England and Amanda Jones from the Crafts Council to talk about Craft Club – a Crafts Council project in association with the UK Handknitting Association and the National Federation of Women’s Institutes. Craft Club is a three-year programme to develop craft in schools. It focuses on yarn-based activities: knitting, sewing and weaving. We discussed the possible development of the Craft Club programme within Arts Council England’s Arts Nation campaign, extending the activity beyond schools to families groups.
