Get your Craft on at Fabrication Craft Con



Fabrication Crafts, the social enterprise supporting micro crafts and design businesses in Leeds, is going one step further this autumn with a 3 day convention running workshops on everything from twitter to origami around the city

The event, which has the support of Leeds City Council’s Enterprise Unit, runs from September 20th-21st and will be hosted by various sites, from their own shop in The Light, to other shopping centres, St John’s Church and many more

Dawn Wood chair of Fabrication says ‘this is an event we’ve wanted to run for a number of years but the time has never been right. There is nothing similar in the UK and with the huge growth of the independent craft movement in the country we now felt it was needed, asking our sellers what kind of workshops they’d like to see and the programme has just grown we’ve a wide range of subjects business and fun including PR, accounts, selling online etc but also intend to enhance the social aspect of enterprise with networking and crafting’

The event will also be opened up to local craft groups and WI’s who want to run sessions and no craft is off the agenda from food to jewellery, body products to glass, ceramics, medieval pottery, artwork, clothing, metalwork & home wares etc.
