The Crafts Study Centre is a charity created by artist-makers and educators to protect the best of modern British crafts.
We are a specialist university museum open free to the public as well as a research centre of the University for the Creative Arts. The Centre's acclaimed collections include modern and contemporary calligraphy, ceramics, textiles, furniture and wood as well as makers' diaries, working notes and photographs dating from the 1920s.
Inspiring exhibitions and gallery talks by leading artist-makers are held year round in our two galleries. We foster scholarship and writing about modern and contemporary craft through this website and publishing new books and monographs. We also host one academic symposium a year. The Centre's research library is available by appointment for those interested in learning more about our collections.
