As the national agency for contemporary craft, the Crafts Council champions high quality contemporary craft practice nationally and internationally.
CC believes that “craft plays a dynamic and vigorous role in the UK’s social, economic and cultural life and that the strength of craft lies in its use of traditional and contemporary techniques, ideas and materials to make extraordinary new work”.
As a creative, it is pretty normal to go through periods of extreme doubt about one’s abilities and purpose. Given the professionalism of this organisation and the high quality of the work they choose to feature on their website and in their quarterly magazine ‘Crafts’, their decision to accept me into their dirctory feels like a huge and important vote of confidence in my work.
Seeing as it was my birthday, they couldn’t have timed their email any better.
Thank you Craft Council!
