Hothouse is a programme tailor-made for contemporary craft makers, delivered across three regional cohorts (East, North, and South West) with a fourth, London, aimed specifically at makers working in the disciplines of jewellery and metal. Each cohort is led by expert trainers and experienced practioners, and delivered by regional professional development agencies and other relevant organisations across the country. The programme includes group sessions on developing business skills, market knowledge and creativity; networking events which bring participants together as a national group; and 1 to 1 sessions with a specialist mentor from the sector.

Previous recipients of Hothouse awards include Jane Dzisiewski, currently exhibiting in ‘COAST’ at the RBSA Craft Gallery (until 31 August 2012), Aimee Betts who is exhibiting at ‘World Event Young Artists’, a new international arts festival in Nottingham, during September 2012 and Janice Zethraeus, currently showing in ‘On the Line’ at Studio Fusion Gallery, London (until 9 September 2012).
