Become a Patron

Do you want to help nurture makers, helping them to create, develop and promote their work?

Would you like to give people of all ages the inspirational experience of seeing and learning about contemporary craft? And would you enjoy getting behind the scenes and meeting the people involved in contemporary craft? If so, then becoming a Crafts Council Patron is for you.

Patrons have three levels of membership from which to choose:

With an annual gift of £1,000, you’ll receive invitations to studio visits, private views and events that will enrich your love of crafts and knowledge of professional makers. You will also be invited to the private view and receive 2 complimentary tickets to COLLECT, Europe’s leading fair for contemporary objects.

With an annual gift of £1,500, you will additionally be invited to attend extra events including a fascinating talk given by one of craft’s leading lights.

With an annual gift of £2,500, you will also have the opportunity to get closer to the heart of the Crafts Council’s work including an annual dinner with our Executive Director, Trustees and makers and enjoy unlimited access to COLLECT including 2 tickets to the exclusive Collectors’ View.  

Whichever level you choose, you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing you’re integral to helping contemporary UK craft to thrive and grow - and deepening your insight into this exciting, stimulating world.
