Our inclusivity commitment
We’re committed to making the show as representative of the crafting community as possible. In practical terms this means:
- supporting and encouraging vendors and workshop tutors from marginalised groups
- making sure that BIPOC and LGBTQ+ members of our community in particular feel welcome and safe, by making it clear that no discrimination, however covert, will be tolerated. Vendors and workshop tutors will need to accept our no-discrimination policy before the show and it will be made clear on our social media channels and in signs at the venue for visitors. Anyone who can’t respect that will be unwelcome in any part of the show.
- if you have any concerns about this, or would like to suggest ways we can improve our inclusivity further please get in touch.
