Cræftiga is a major new talent search, aimed at unearthing the next generation of undiscovered craftspeople.
The winners’ work will be exhibited at the British Craft Pavilion within London Design Fair in September 2018, and will receive mentoring including PR, promotional, design, communication and editorial support from Hole & Corner over the course of a year, as well as insight from our extensive network of makers, influencers and industry leaders.
While we are dedicated to supporting traditional craft and skills, Cræftiga is a future-facing enterprise: we will reward the most innovative and sustainable processes, plus uses and applications of materials.
Cræftiga is open to makers born after September 1, 1982 and who are British-based. Makers should submit one piece of work made after January 1, 2017.
The award is aimed at anyone whose work covers the spectrum of art, craft or design. We will be looking in particular for projects that take the heritage of craft and making as inspiration and push it into new, sustainable and innovative spaces.

100 words describing the project you are submitting
Up to 5 images (no more than 10MB in total). Video, Dropbox, website or WeTransfer links will not be accepted
