The importance of craft as part of our intangible cultural heritage as well as its practical benefits to both professionals and amateurs has become increasingly recognized. The Crafts Study Centre provides hands-on access to one of the most unique collections of modernist British craft, which includes contemporary calligraphy, ceramics, textiles, furniture and wood as well as diaries, working notes and photographs of makers of the 20th and 21st centuries.  


We host inspiring exhibitions by leading artist-makers, lectures, symposiums and open days, foster scholarship and writing about modern and contemporary craft and publish new books and monographs. The Centre's research library is available by appointment for those interested in learning more about our collections.
