Introductory programme - enrolment open!

Thank you so much to everyone who has signed up to our Introductory programme so far. Our current cohort of students are producing some great work as they study towards City & Guilds accreditation. The Introductory programme is a rolling enrolment so you can join any time – you can find out more below.

If you are interested in enrolling for our Foundation programme, enrolment is now open for our next intake. If you would like to join us, the autumn programme begins on 31 October and you can sign up here.

To find out more about the Foundation programme, you can download the prospectus and read more on the information page here.

If you would like to know more or would like to discuss whether the Foundation or Introductory programmes are for you, I’d be delighted to help. Please email me at or give me a call on the contact number below.

Many thanks and best wishes, Debbie x

A warm welcome to Making Futures!

Debbie and Pete are delighted to officially introduce the latest addition to the DT Craft & Design family – Making Futures CIC.

Debbie has been quietly running Making Futures for several years, teaching and producing training materials, mentoring and working with community groups. As it has now ‘grown up’ we thought it should have its own website so welcome to our new space here on the web. The DT Crafts shop is, of course still very much available, with an ever-increasing range of products (and a need for more storage space!).

It’s still just the two of us looking after you so expect the same personalised service and attention to detail here as at the shop. Debbie will still be answering your emails and questions (no ‘bots’ on our sites!), taking workshop and course bookings and discussing your requirements for courses, groups and projects.

Speaking of which, we are thrilled to announce that we have joined the Artybird flock and have recently launching two amazing new, professionally accredited, distance learning knitting programmes – both accredited by City & Guilds. You can find out more by clicking on the images or buttons below.

And for those of you who may not have met us in person or are new visitors, we’ve done a short video about Debbie and how DT Crafts and Making Futures came about, here.

There’s lots more to come, both ‘virtually’ and (hopefully) in person so do bookmark the page and we hope to see you on a course or workshop soon!

Debbie & Pete
