COLLECT provides a unique opportunity to buy exceptional craft from the world’s leading makers, represented by galleries and dealers. The elegant venue and access to experts and the makers themselves creates a very special and inspiring environment. 

COLLECT in 2017 will feature more exhibitors than ever before and will include: curated installations showing craft in domestic and interiors settings; ‘best in show’ selections made by high-profile creative and cultural figures; COLLECT Open which shows more concept-driven and experimental craft; a café and bar; and an events programme which will inspire and encourage debate, learning and ambition for makers, collectors, curators, educators and anyone with an interest in craft.  

Tickets will be on sale from autumn 2016. Sign up to our newsletter for COLLECT updates and to hear about tickets going on sale.


Collect Open offers an unique opportunity to individual artists or collaborations to exhibit alongside international galleries showing the very best contemporary craft from around the world.

Collect Open has been a rich addition to the fair since 2011 and encourages artists to show work which challenges traditional perceptions of craft and design.

We are looking for exciting proposals to show new ambitious works by individuals or collaborations. This is a unique opportunity to present the unexpected to an influential and high-profile audience. 

COLLECT Open applications are now closed. More details to follow
