About us / Funders
The Making is funded by Hampshire County Council, Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council and a range of trusts and foundations to produce contemporary craft and design education and professional development programmes in the South East.

We aim to achieve long-term sustainability through project funding, earned income and corporate partnerships. In addition to fundraising, we are developing new income streams in the areas of education, commerce and the corporate sector. Our programmes meet key government targets relating to young people, families and learning, and we work as a statutory service provider of craft and art workshops for the region's schools, extended schools service, youth programmes and children's centres. We also organise public art commissions and craft workshops for shopping centres, heritage sites, festivals, corporate training and events.

If you would like to commission us to run workshops for you or to support our work for disadvantaged children and young people, please call us on 01256 845 679 or email admin@themaking.org.uk
