Crafts Council Young People’s Meeting: Woman’s Hour Craft Prize @ the V&A Museum

Aged 16 – 25 and interested in craft and making?

Join the Crafts Council's young people's group for a visit to the V&A to explore the Woman's Hour Craft Prize exhibition.

The Prize launched in 2017 and aims to find and celebrate the most innovative and exciting craft practitioner or designer-maker resident in the UK today. The exhibition showcases work by the 12 finalists— with work ranging from a bespoke bicycle by Caren Hartley to a raw clay sculpture by prize-winner Pheobe Cummings. Jill Read, the Crafts Council's Head of Communications, helped to develop the prize, and will join us for an insider's look at this amazing collection of work and an insight into arts marketing and communications.

Why get involved?

This new network of Londoners aged 16-25 brings together those who are passionate about craft and making to co-produce projects and events with us at the Crafts Council, and in doing so help shape the future of craft in the UK.
