What I do

Julia Bennett is Head of Research and Policy at the Crafts Council.

Julia’s recent research projects include Studying Craft, a time series analysis of trends in craft education and training, and Defining and Measuring Craft, a set of proposals which resulted in DCMS including craft data for the first time in its economic estimates.

As an experienced research manager, policy specialist and strategist, Julia has worked with small charities and arts organisations, as well as for the Learning and Skills Improvement Service, the Local Government Association and the Minority Rights Group.

Why is the UK failing to take advantage of its expertise in fusing craft and technology skills?
