Craftspace is a charity creating opportunities to see, make and be curious about exceptional contemporary craft.
We are based in Birmingham and work collaboratively regionally, nationally and internationally.
We build relationships between artists, people and organisations and encourage the sharing of ideas, skills and knowledge.
We have 30 years’ experience and continue to learn, push boundaries and challenge ideas.
Craftspace initiates artistic programmes which stimulate creative excellence, critical thinking and understanding of contemporary crafts in the widest social and cultural contexts.

We are a small team led by our Director, Deirdre Figueiredo MBE.
