The Making is an arts education charity established to develop high quality contemporary craft and to inspire new audiences to engage with the art of making.
Participating in the crafts can be one of the most rewarding, inclusive and inspiring ways to learn. The Making is the only organisation in the South East to specialise in participatory craft education. It engages new audiences, especially young people and families, by providing innovative, high quality programmes in non-traditional venues throughout the region and by piloting new approaches to informal learning. Significant outcomes have been the development of The Theatre of Making, Skills in the Making and our latest initiative, Festival Makers.
We actively support the development of artists and arts educators. We provide employment and promotion opportunities and informal mentoring. We have also initiated on-line resources, a database, training, talks and seminars to encourage debate and information exchange.
