Summer is a time to embark on new adventures and try new things. This issue is packed full of ways you can Cultivate your Creativity by learning, teaching or having a go at something new!


We have an exclusive interview with Holly Berry who tells us about life after Mastercrafts. Executive Director of the Crafts Council, Rosey Greenlees, talks to us about cuts in arts funding. There’s a raft of useful advice from running training courses to self-learning and a bumper pack of tutorials to make your teaching or learning space look spick and span. As well as all our usual articles on events, reviews, recipes and handmade goodies. Enjoy!
