Walpole's Crafted: Makers of the Exceptional programme was founded in 2007 to enable small craft companies to develop their business skills. The programme connected a new generation of skilled makers with luxury brands, promoting the craft component of luxury in a contemporary and sustainable way through mentorship and a series of workshops. After 10 incredible years nurturing Britain's talented artisans, Crafted: Makers of The Exceptional will no longer run in its current format. We will announce our next initiative supporting the sector in due course.
