Not only will you benefit from the use of a free, spacious studio for up to a year to develop your practice, but also gain from having one-to-one mentorship from a handpicked designer-maker with years of practical and business experience. This is an opportunity to be part of a unique thriving creative community where you will benefit from peer support and skill exchange.
