The National Centre for Craft & Design sits at the heart of the market town of Sleaford in Lincolnshire in the beautiful riverside setting of Navigation Wharf. It is the largest venue in England entirely dedicated to the exhibition, celebration and promotion of contemporary and international craft and design.

We do not have a permanent collection, providing instead a seasonal programme of dynamic exhibitions ranging from international to innovative new work created by local and regional artists shown across our four diverse gallery spaces.

Open every day from 10am to 5pm except Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day.
