A Home for Craft

We’re opening our doors and our collection

Space to make. Room to think. A chance to see beyond the catalogue, through the cabinets and behind closed doors. 

The Crafts Council is changing. We want to transform the ground floor of our magnificent building on Pentonville Road into a new home for craft in London, and we need your help.

Our project is gaining momentum and to date we have raised £170,000 towards our target of £500,000. Through this campaign we hope to raise a further £90,000 which will help us display our collections of national significance.

Visitors will be able to see objects from our collection up close. Delve into our unique library of over 6,000 books and catalogues, discover new makers and see work from those they know already. Watch films, hear lectures, participate in workshops and salons. Sit quietly or mingle. Make our space their own.

For makers, it will be a new space to showcase work and meet the craft community. For new audiences it will be a welcoming, relaxed place to explore and start a lifelong passion for craft. With our huge calendar of events, it will truly be a place for everyone.

We want craft to be accessible to everyone. To start new conversations. To inspire new makers, support our brightest talent and change the future of craft in the UK.

Please help us make this project a reality and donate now.  

With your support, we can help shape the future of craft for everyone.
