Help grow the Crafts Council Collection

Play a very special role in sharing the breadth and beauty of contemporary craft

Your minimum annual donation of £5,000 would help to build, conserve and showcase the Crafts Council Collection - the UK’s most breathtaking collection of contemporary craft. 

With over 1,600 objects, embracing all craft disciplines and the most important makers over the last 40 years, the Collection is the bedrock of our exhibitions and loans programme across the UK. Not only do we need to continue to acquire new work to ensure that the Collection remains current, but we also need to conserve and showcase the existing objects and transport them to exhibitions and out on loan.

As a Ruby Circle member you’ll  be a Crafts Council insider with your finger on the pulse of UK craft and access to exclusive opportunities. You’ll see and learn more about the objects in the Collection, in the company of experts, and be invited to private views and events such as Collect, the leading international art fair for contemporary objects. And in further recognition of your generous support, we would be delighted to associate your name with an object of your choice in the Collection.
