Creative Exchange

This idea was introduced to the Forum by jeweller Dot Sim and FCA&C’s Diana Sykes. Dot had the inspiration and FCA&C are happy to administer a pilot to get it all started. The idea was to give artists/makers the chance to have a day (or a half day) out to refresh themselves creatively by meeting up with a fellow practitioner. It might just be a day of discussions (or moans!), but there may be a creative element – all up to the individuals concerned.

At the moment, participants are arranging meetings with each other – we’ll report back on how it all went in 2011.
