Craft Victoria is a national leader in the craft and design sector, promoting a cutting-edge vision of hand-crafted practice in the 21st century. Since 1970, Craft has supported the growth of thousands of makers, nurtured hundreds of small creative businesses and challenged the boundaries of craft practice.
Craft has built a vibrant and sustainable contemporary craft and design community by supporting, showcasing and celebrating all craft disciplines.
Craft’s headquarters in Melbourne has become a hub for audiences and makers working across ceramics, furniture, jewellery, textiles, fibre and glass to gather, view, discuss and celebrate works by many of Australia’s most highly regarded craft practitioners. The gallery and maker showcase spaces provide opportunities for hundreds of makers each year to exhibit their works. Tens of thousands of people visit Craft each year to view our free exhibitions which uniquely focus on artists who demonstrate an astonishing level of skill and transformation of materials.
