Patternbank’s very own Neil Elliott will be guiding graduates on how to fine tune their portfolios for optimum effect. Other industry experts include WGSN, The Craft Council and Hand Made in Britain to name a few that will be involved, if you’re a graduate or heading down to New Designers, check out the sessions available to book – Arts Thread Speed Portfolio Review.
