Craft Hub will work with Practitioners, Educators/Learners, Academics/Researchers, Inter-disciplinary Professionals & wider Public to encourage greater participation, the creation of high quality new work & professional opportunities.

CH proposes a new model to document & safeguard Craft knowledge, one that complements existing resources & digs deeper, enabling an exploration of process/skill, as well as motivation, to record/contextualize emerging/experimental, established & ‘at risk’ Craft.

Craft Hub pushes boundaries, drawing on Heritage & established processes to combine with new & experimental ways of making.

Craft Hub explores disciplines including glass/ceramics/jewellery/stone-masonry/metalwork/textiles/furniture/digital making & more.

Craft Hub supports the business of Craft, identifying routes to sustainable Practice.

Craft Hub reclaims the word Craft; Craft Makers voice their own identity through interviews, practice & artefacts.

Craft Hub: Inspiring Makers.
