Crafts Council Gallery

Craft School: A summer of playful making
Until 3 September

This summer, the Crafts Council Gallery will become a hive of activity where visitors can create, play, and experiment with clays, textiles, paper, and card at a ‘making table’ and meet others who also love craft.

There will be a free weekly workshop held every Wednesday in August, led by friendly staff and skilled craft educators.

Craft School will also display six winning entries from the national school’s competition Craft School: Yinka’s Challenge, developed in collaboration with multi-disciplinary British-Nigerian artist Yinka Ilori.
