Events On-Demand

Rooted in our seasonal concepts, TOAST Virtual Workshops bring together our community of creative individuals through craft. The talks and workshops we host are now available to watch on-demand.

50% of on-demand sales will be donated by TOAST to Crafts Council UK, the national charity for craft. Funds raised will support the work they do to inspire making, empower people through learning and nurture craft businesses. We are proud to be an advocate for their projects, which are focused on social justice, environmental responsibility and talent development in the craft sector.
