The British Crafts Council aims to make the UK the best place to make, see, collect and learn about contemporary craft by building a strong economy and infrastructure for contemporary craft, increasing and diversifying the audience for contemporary craft and championing high quality contemporary craft practices nationally and internationally. We believe that craft plays a dynamic and vigorous role in the UKs social, economic and cultural life. We believe that the future of craft lies in nurturing talent; children and young people must be able to learn about craft at school and have access to excellent teaching throughout their education.
