Craft is one of Victoria’s largest and oldest arts organisations dedicated to championing aspirational making and ideas driven practice through exhibitions, public and retail programs. Craft represents more contemporary craftspeople than any other organisation in Australia, and through extensive programming and events brings together a vibrant and sustainable contemporary craft and design community which represents, promotes and celebrates all craft practitioners.
We are also a not-for-profit membership based organisation that supports makers through every stage of their careers. Through our retail space, exhibitions, events and membership program we promote excellence and innovation in contemporary craft.
