Who’s been attending?

As these meets are about connecting during this time there’s a list below of who’s been attending, along with links to their websites. We’ve also included the films that R&A have made of some of the makers, so that you can learn a bit more about them.

We wanted to include these details so that you if you have stumbled across this page, you can meet and connect with these people further. Perhaps you might find out about new makers and share in some #craftlove during these strange times.

All are welcome to attend the sessions, so do come along and spread the word!
