The Crafts Study Centre is a specialist university museum open to the public as well as a research centre and home to internationally renowned collections of modern British craft.
The Craft Study Centre's acclaimed collections include modern and contemporary calligraphy, ceramics, textiles, furniture and wood as well as diaries, working notes and photographs of makers of the 20th and 21st centuries.
We host inspiring exhibitions by leading artist-makers, lectures, symposiums and open days. We foster scholarship and writing about modern and contemporary craft and publish new books and monographs.
The Centre's research library is available by appointment for those interested in learning more about our collections.
Our shop offers publications from our exhibitions present and past and other carefully selected titles alongside crafts magazines such as Ceramic Review and Selvedge. If you are a collector of craft or just looking for an inspiring present, we stock work by talented makers from across the UK.
