    "We’re looking for the next collection of talented home sewers for the seventh series of The Great British Sewing Bee.

    We hope that it will be safe to film The Great British Sewing Bee later in the year as planned and we are still encouraging applications. Filming will only take place when it is safe to do. We are closely monitoring the situation and following the advice of Public Health England. As a result, we may adjust how or when we carry out auditions. The safety and welfare of everyone involved in our productions is always paramount."

    Deadline: 7 June 2020.

  • Call for Jewellers: Hand Medal Project

    11-May-2020 - Calls for Makers
    Call for Jewellers: Hand Medal Project

     Hand Medal Project

    "As we witness how health professionals give their best to the community, risking their lives for us, we want to find a way to honour them. They should receive a medal, an offering given in gratitude and devotion. At some point this crisis will pass and there will be time to thank them for everything they did.

    We intend to present as many healthcare workers as possible with a medal inspired by a traditional ex-vote to also mark that moment when we can glimpse the future."
