Maker Training Survey24-Sep-2020
Craft NI is continuing to develop our maker support options. We plan to run some sessions in the next couple of months, others will be delivered in 2021. The programmes will include both free and paid options presented by industry experts, and elements of peer-to-peer learning where makers can share their experience with one another (we will pay contributing makers for their time).
We would be delighted if makers would take a few minute to complete this short survey, so we can align our planning with your current needs.
