In an ever more digitalised world, there is a growing counter-movement to regain 'analogue' craft skills. Now a new breed of artists and craftspeople are opening the doors of their studios to teach would-be makers hand-made skills. One such mediator for the direct conversation between hobbyist and artisan is Quodo.com. Quodo is the creative shopwindow to discover unique workshops with London's leading artists and craftspeople. Join one of their public workshops, or bring some creativity into your workplace for your next company event.
