#folksyfriday giveaway! Do you have a friend who’s totally purrfect? Is there someone you would like to treat, or thank in a way only a cat holding a bouquet of flowers can? Or would you like to nominate someone and actually keep it for yourself?* If so, just tell us who you think is purrfect and why,* and our favourite will win this supercute cat brooch by @emmamargaretillustration * this is bad and we do not in any way endorse such behaviour.

fiboozy : Beautiful so lovely @folksyhq β€οΈπŸ‘ŒπŸ˜πŸ’–
aingealsile : My friend Sarah, but she's not on IG
folksyhq : She doesn't need to be on IG @aingealsile. You can nominate her anyway :)
aingealsile : Then definitely her!
trulymadlydiva : My friend Natalie, always there for the good times, bad times and encourages my crazy dreams 😊
thelighthousekeepersgirl : Jo Hawkins because she's just told me she's moving three counties away and I don't want her too 😒. Maybe the brooch will make her stay? She's also a vet that cares for purdy cats like this one everyday.
sarahopkinsart : @sleepyfoxspirit For sticking with me no matter how far away we are and always helping me clean up after art shows - even in the pouring rain ❀️ She is not only a fantastic friend, she helps shelter kitties! 🐱

The Revealing Craft book is available to buy from folksy.com as a newsprint book designed by @dustcollective if you want a copy to keep and treasure forever.

Product description of the day (if not the year) by @beccimaryanne: "This painting depicts perhaps the most terrifying hybridised animal known to man. They might not exist (yet) but my god when they do; hold on to your children. They may well act as a marvellous bargaining device." And while on the subject of cats, tonight's #folksyhour is all about copyright and three guests will be there to answer your questions about what to do if a copycat steals your idea, and what you can and can't reference in your work. See you at 8pm.

folksyhq : See more amazing pieces by @beccimaryanne ("the unofficial third best painter of non-landscape work in North Leeds") here πŸ‘‰ folksy.com/shops/beccimaryanne
alisonsye : I am not working tonight so hopefully I will be there or be square!
beccimaryanne : Hahaha thanks @folksyhq πŸ’ͺ

In 2012 photographer @indiahobson embarked on a project with Folksy to document the story of 13 makers and the spaces where they create. The project, named Revealing Craft, developed into a newsprint book designed by @dustcollective and published thanks to @kickstarter. It's now available for you to own through Folksy and we'll be revealing more photos from the project all this week here on Instagram. This first one is the greenhouse/potting shed of Helen Hallows @helen_hallows_studio who describes the most important aspect of her workspace as being "the view of her garden".
helen_hallows_studio : It certainly is! I'm inspired by all the new shoots and fresh growth. Follow my creative journey at www.facebook.com/helenhallowsstudio
seaforthdesigns : @folksyhq lovely photos, I know who hard it can be to get the prefect shot!
poumistudio : Ooh exciting 😊

After 7 May the UK will have a new government. It's critical that whoever comes to power acknowledges the importance of craft and creativity in education and acts to protect it. There are things you can do to make help make that happen. Find out what you can do and why it matters over on the blog #FutureInMaking
futureinmaking -
nikkisworldart : Totally agree that arts & crafts must b taught explicitly and they r fundamental to the development of well rounded people! Creativity is ultimately human...unfortunate that some people don't GET this!πŸŒˆπŸŒπŸ‘Š
catmackglass : This is so true. I really hope that PROPER AND WHOLESOME Craft tutorage can be instilled in the UK, but with art schools and craft practises dying out, how can this be done? Our society is so trained in "throw-away" culture. How can we open their eyes to UK Craft? How can we open their eyes to #buyinglessbuyingbetter? How can we make consumers WANT to buy future airlooms? It's not just about out institutions is is also the consumers attitudes. I'll be following this with interest.
folksyhq : Very true @catmackglass. As well as understanding the importance of craft on the curriculum we also need to educate consumers to value skill and craftsmanship more highly.
folksyhq : Absolutely @nikkisworldart! Making and creating should absolutely be valued more - in education and in society too πŸ‘Š
