Be Curious with Us…

 

support our work by giving a donation to Craftspace

With your support we can continue to deliver extraordinary encounters with craft and invest in talented makers who reveal the breadth of possibilities for contemporary making.

As a supporter you will be joining others who value the impact and importance of craft and making to the richness of cultural life, to personal and social well-being and economic resilience and innovation.  We raise our income from public grants including the Arts Council of England and private Trusts & Foundations.  We earn income from the knowledge and experience we have developed and from donations from individuals who want to see the impact of our work continue.

For a limited time your donation can be matched, pound for pound.
