As a national charity, we advance craft in the UK. We build on the UK's status as a world leader in craft, harnessing the power of craft to transform lives, to inspire innovation and drive individual fulfilment. Since 1971, we have pushed the boundaries of craft through our exhibitions, commissions and talent development programmes. We are the custodians of the national collections of craft. We support the sector, training makers, curators and sector leaders, and champion the campaigns that secure the future of craft. Our profile and voice increase the number and diversity of audiences engaged in craft.
