We're a group of Makers who would like to make a difference. 2016 has been a year in which the world has witnessed more than its fair share of horror. The unimaginable has happened. Again and again. In Syria, in Calais, in Greece - and many other places too. There have been days where many of us have felt powerless and ineffectual - and aware of our privilege. On those days making can seem like an insignificant activity. But it's what us Makers can do. Our collective ability is to make objects of use and beauty. This project is about giving our making extra meaning and purpose by raising funds to support some of the people currently living through such desperate times.

Thank you for your interest in this project.

Event details

Making a difference through our making

A number of individual Makers have come together for this Project and each of them has selected a week from the 2017 calendar. During 'their' week each Maker will release a piece or a batch of work and make it available to buy through their usual sales channels - and they'll donate the entire sales proceeds (less shipping and processing fees) to Help Refugees through this fundraising page. More information about this project can be found here:

We'll be using the #makers4refugees hashtag on Instagram if you want to follow along there too.
