This is to coincide with the opening of a new display planned to open at the Museum of London later this year, which is the result of a contemporary collecting project. The display will offer a visually stimulating insight into the state of craft and making in modern London; exploring how makers have shaped, and are shaped, by the capital city. Important: The display has yet to be announced by Museum of London and therefore will be under embargo until 31 August

The Museum is also looking into the possibility of running workshops onsite so we also invite you to express an interest in facilitating one, although this is not necessary to have your work accepted.
