Crafty Networking is a collaborative programme between O3 Gallery, the VERVE project at the Pitt Rivers and Darn It & Stitch. Crafty Networking is an Initiative to support craft-workers, designers and artists to make positive connections with like-minded people. We endeavor to put makers, sellers, bloggers, buyers and enthusiasts in touch to discuss their work, share skills and interests, meet people who may be able to help with the commercial success of their work, and connect them with the rich and inspirational collections at the Pitt Rivers. Crafty networking events take places four times a year.
Thursday 22nd May 2014, 6-7:30pm
Pitt Rivers Museum
Join O3 Gallery, The Pitt Rivers Museum and Darn It & Stitch at the Pitt Rivers Museum for a relaxed event that will bring together individuals with a vested interest in the development of local and national craft. From buyers for shops and galleries, craft workers and artisans, to design teachers and the crafty curious, we are dedicated to building a network for all those involved and interested in craft and design.
There will be a short talk then visitors will then be invited to connect with fellow guests over a glass of wine.
Display tables will be made available but due to conservation issues, we ask that you don't bring silk, natural wool, untreated organic material or wet products – if in doubt, drop Jozie ( firstname.lastname@example.org) an email. Cash bar.
O3 Gallery runs Crafty Networking in partnership with The Pitt Rivers Museum and Darn It & Stitch.
