Collect brings together 40 galleries from four continents for a celebration of making, extraordinary in both scale and scope. Museum-quality works and installations from hundreds of the most talented makers in the UK, USA, South Korea, Japan, France, Norway, Italy, Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands and Sweden will offer visitors and collectors a multidisciplinary overview of the people, processes, materials and ideas defining international craft in 2018.

Aquatopia takes you behind the scenes of maker Katrin Spranger's studio in London as she prepares to exhibit at Collect. 

Alongside the hundreds of exquisite objects on display with the galleries you can enjoy the following at Collect;

Collect Open is an exciting space for established and emerging artists to create more exploratory and risk -taking work. Selected by Jay Osgerby for 2018, all projects and installations are developed specifically for Collect and are selected on the basis of scale, concept and ambition.

Collect Spotlights, launched in 2017, are feature areas in which selected galleries highlight cutting-edge work in immersive installations. 

Masters of British Studio Pottery is a special display that tells the story of ceramic art in Britain in the 20th and 21st centuries. Curated in collaboration with The Fitzwilliam Museum it features objects from both institutions collections and works for sale from Marsden Woo, Oxford Ceramics Gallery and Erskine, Hall & Coe. Artists include Alison Britton, Hans Coper, Bernard Leach, Gwyn Hanssen Pigott, Lucie Rie and Julian Stair. Read more here
