Crafty Networking Event

With a short talk by Aimée Payton

Thursday 5th March 2015, 6-8pm.
O3 Gallery, Oxford Castle, OX1 1AY

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 endeavour 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
The Ashmolean’s Eastern Art administrator and organiser of The Big Stitch event, Aimée Payton, will talk about The Big Stitch, a series of tours, talks and workshops presented in partnership with the Embroiderer’s Guild, making reference to the Ashmolean’s The Eye of The Needle exhibition and drawing links between historic and contemporary practice.
