A new home for craft
Situated in the same spot as we were from 1992 to 2006, the new Crafts Council Gallery has undergone a transformation. Following a major capital campaign, AOC Architecture Ltd led the redevelopment of both the interior and exterior spaces, completing work in 2020.
Under the project title ‘A Home for Craft’, we asked for a space which was open and accessible - a place for people to meet, make connections and spark debate. We asked for the space to be flexible, to play host to an evolving programme that will include partnerships and co-curation with the wider craft sector. We also wanted the ability to showcase our collection of 5,000 books and 1,700 objects, and for the public to be captivated by craft, which led to the commission of Sebastian Cox to design and make our beautiful study space shelving. We are delighted with our new home for craft, and look forward to sharing it with you.
