30 years of Craftspace

In its 30 year history Craftspace has produced many opportunities to see, make and be curious about exceptional contemporary craft. Working locally, nationally and internationally with many collaborators we have pushed boundaries and challenged ideas.

During the last 30 years of Craftspace almost 2.5 million people have seen work by well over 2000 artists in almost 450 exhibitions in over 300 venues and we’ve got a quarter of a million people making!
