Crafted is a new scheme which pairs craft makers with leaders in the luxury sector in mentoring relationships. Launched in November 2009, the scheme is now in its fourth month and the mentoring relationships are well underway. Mentees are supported by specialists in areas such as intellectual property rights, e-commerce and international growth and trade, and a six-month programme of workshops hosted by Andaz Hotel Liverpool Street.
Crafted has been developed by Walpole and Arts & Business to enable makers to develop their business skills whilst at the same time connecting luxury businesses with a new generation of skilled crafts people. The scheme is funded by the American Express Foundation.
