MasterCraft Talks are peer-to-peer webinar sessions hosted by DCCI. They provide designers and makers with the opportunities to gain insight and learning from other makers. The series aims to get us all thinking differently, encourage discussion, foster learning, challenge preconceptions and encourage new approaches. It also hopes to simply engage people creatively. MasterCraft broadcasts will take place at 4.15pm once selections have been made. See schedule below for upcoming dates and to register in advance. You can also view previous sessions on DCCI's MasterCraft Webinars playlist on YouTube or via the links.
