Exploring the interaction of traditional and digital techniques and tools can produce a myriad of creative and innovative outcomes.

Through Crafting Europe’s iAtelier programme the Crafts Council and STEAMhouse have been supporting ten makers with craft or digital skills to develop new collaborations, prototype ideas, and integrate new digital fabrication technologies into craft practice.

Hear about the experience and impact of the project from participating makers Elise Gustilo, Joe Geehan, Claire Haley, Tusheeta David, Mariam Syed, Jess White, Duggie Dundas, Banita Mistry, and Charley Blackburn, and find out more about the five final collaborative projects which explore ideas across a range of materials and disciplines including furniture, millinery, textiles, and jewellery.
