We often pay a premium for hand-made objects that combine utility with beauty: they seem to have 'soul'. But who is behind their design and manufacture? Over the last six years Jonathan Foyle, a QEST Ambassador, has penned the 'Artisans' feature for the Financial Times Weekend, investigating the inspirations, talents, traditions, and legacy of scores of craftspeople. This talk takes you into their workshops to reveal the state of British Craft today.

QEST (Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust), the charity of the Royal Warrant Holders Association, funds the education and training of craftspeople.

Priority booking for Members is now open; general booking will open 21 June, subject to availability.
