Handmade in Britain Survey

Everyday seems to throw a new challenge for our community and Covid19 has impacted the craft sector severely, resulting in disruption, through cancellation or postponement of events, putting craftspeople and organisers at a financial disadvantage with many of them losing livelihoods.

Over the past 13 years Handmade in Britain has provided a platform to support and promote design and craft talent through fairs, events and pop-ups, workshops and business mentoring. To adapt to the new normal we are working towards improving and changing the look and feel of our in-person events and online platforms.

To help promote British Craftsmanship we need your input now more than ever before to make our services better. Please complete the short questionnaire which will only take 2 minutes of your time.

All responses are anonymous and your contact details will not be shared with any other organisation.

People Know How’s All Aboard Campaign

Stories Along the Union Canal

People Know How and Polwarth Parish Church have been working together since the last
year, bringing their project All Aboard to life. Together, the Scottish charity and parish
church will run a boat from the Polwarth Pontoon aboard the Union Canal, promoting
learning and positive engagement with the community within this unique environment.
After a successful pilot last summer, the project has been awarded various grants allowing
the partner organisations to near their goal of purchasing their own canal boat. In planning
the purchase, they have been engaging widely with the canal community to find the most
suitable boat with which they can provide the best support.

Now in the midst of the coronavirus outbreak they are finding new ways to continue this
community engagement through their Stories Along the Union Canal campaign. As they
prepare to take this big step forward on the canal, they have been looking backwards, to
the history and memories of this community. These stories and memories have been
compiled into an interactive map on their website and People Know How will be sharing
these stories regularly over the next month, starting Monday 8 June, with an open call for
new entries.

Keep an eye out on People Know How’s social media channels and get involved with the
campaign!
