celebrating and promoting our world-class centre and resource
that is dedicated to national and international contemporary craft
Each season thousands of people of all ages enjoy visiting our exhibitions and taking part in our inspiring learning programmes. The aim of this new website is to transfer these experiences online and inspire and inform digital audiences from around the world through our work.
The development of our site will be an ongoing project for us.
The next stage will see us build our archive, including a decade of exhibitions and a resource of online events and activities. We would love to hear what you think and what is popular. Please do get in touch and share your thoughts with us at email@example.com
Finally a big big thank you to SB Studio for their support and commitment in developing a stunning, practical and brand
We love it and we hope you do to!

of Craft Victoria's annual Craft Cubed festival. It was curated by jeweller Norman Cherry and features striking work by twelve UK
and Australian-based makers who have considered the impact
and stories around migration, movement and being transplanted.

On July 14 prestigious creative agency and membership organisation Design-Nation joined Design Factory and The National Centre for Craft & Design to create a NEW and stronger alliance of organisations that lead across the UK and international craft and design sectors.
This new alliance of brands will unite all three organisations in a joint mission to deliver new opportunities to develop and grow
the UK’s creative community. By bringing together new partners, champions and investment, the alliance will strengthen business
and creative development in the contemporary design and crafts sector across the UK.
It was a little over 10 years ago when North Kesteven District Council’s vision to bring an arts and culture facility to the
district was realised through The National Centre for Craft & Design. The news of this collaboration will undoubtedly enhance that, said Cllr Lindsey Cawrey, NKDC Executive Board Member
with responsibility for arts and culture.
The Design Nation portfolio can be explored here: www.designnation.co.uk.
