Explore the collaborative relationship between maker and manufacturer with our expert panel

Penny Martin, editor in chief of The Gentlewoman, was joined by our panel of contemporary designers and industry experts to explore how the collaborative relationship between maker and manufacturer manifests today.

The panel includes Designer Beca Lipscombe of Atelier E.B; artist, ceramist and illustrator John Booth; April Crichton co-founder of LA FETICHE; designer Olubiyi Thomas; and Lorraine Acornley, Creative Director of historic Scottish Weaver's Begg & Co.
