About us

We are a craft organisation based in Leigh Park, Hampshire, with impact across the UK. We literally make space for people and organisations involved in craft, whether physically in our own building or digitally in our virtual networks and events. 

Raising the profile of craft in all its forms, we work with local and national arts organisations, contributing to debate, supporting makers and providing opportunities.

Through our outreach projects, we work with partners including schools, children’s centres, family learning environments and retirement homes.

Our specially tailored projects inspire, challenge, skill-up, engage and build new audiences for the sector. We offer both first-time experiences of craft and work with those who want to take their skills to the next level. We enable people to develop new ways of thinking about craft and experience first-hand the important presence of craft in everyday life.
