A registered charity, for 40 years we have supported craftsmanship and craftspeople and encouraged the public to appreciate craft skills and buy fine craft products.

We manage studios, provide business support, run promotional activities, offer exhibiting, and selling opportunities for craftspeople at all stages in their careers. Our designer maker Network enables craftspeople to link with colleagues in the wider craft community. The programme of curated events in the Craft Central gallery and at other venues provides opportunities for craftspeople to exhibit and sell their products and engages the public in an appreciation of fine design and making skills.
