'The new Crafts Council conference Make:Shift explores how advances in materials, processes and technologies are driving innovation in craft practice 

A surgeon, an expert on robotics in architecture and an inventor of colour-changing fabrics are among the world-leading makers, thinkers and innovators confirmed for the Crafts Council’s first Make:Shift conference this November.

Taking place at Ravensbourne in London from 20 to 21 November 2014, Make:Shift will explore current and future thinking on the role of craft in 21st century production.
