I am writing on behalf of craft&design magazine and NIACE to invite a representative from your organisation to attend the official launch of a new Craft Toolkit at 9.30am on Friday 11th May at Hatfield House in Hertfordshire, on the eve of Adult Learners' Week.  
This has been developed as part of the government's, and in particular Skills Minister John Hayes,' craft initiative.  
The toolkit is an online resource for those who have a passion for craft and want to know how to earn a living from it.  It features a wealth of valuable information for those within the industry collected from those already working in it.  
The location for the launch has been carefully selected as it plays host to one of Europe's longest running and most prestigious craft events, Living Crafts, from 10th through to 13th May; hence the show will be underway on the day of the launch and offers a super opportunity to see first hand the high standard of British craftsmanship.
Following the launch, guests will receive a complimentary ticket to visit the show and perhaps try one of the many activities on offer.
In addition there will be literally hundreds of designer makers selling or demonstrating their craft, many of whom have spent their lives working as craftsmen and women.  By contrast craft&design magazine sponsors the 'emerging designers' pavilion which features a fine array of craft from some of the newest designer makers working today.
I do hope you will be able to join us.
With very best wishes,
Jan Lasnon

Craft in an Age of Change

Craft in an Age of Change is a major survey of contemporary craft at the beginning of the second decade of the 21st century, examining the place of craft in the creative economy and the working patterns of makers and other craft professionals today. 

Following its publication in February 2012, the Crafts Council in association with CraftNet, is holding a series of workshops around the country to present highlights from the report, discuss the findings and share ideas about their implications for the future development of contemporary craft. See below for details of events in London and Bristol. There will be two further events in Cambridge and Liverpool in June/July with further details to be announced.
