Shout out for interest - craft/making/amateur creativity research?

My name is Clare Daněk and I’m an AHRC-funded doctoral student based at the University of Leeds, where I’m busy doing some very hands-on research into how people learn amateur craft skills. 

My DTP (WRoCAH, comprising the Universities of York, Leeds and Sheffield) is full of interesting people, but I haven’t come across other researchers within the DTP whose research falls into the area of craft/making/amateur creativity – so I’m spreading the net wider.  

I’d love to hear from other AHRC-funded doctoral researchers to discuss potential connections, conversation, collaboration about craft/making/amateur creativity/that sort of thing, with a view to developing a network and maybe an event.  

Drop me a line at and we can start the conversation.
