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 Centre's acclaimed collections include modern and contemporary calligraphy, ceramics, textiles, furniture and wood as well as makers' diaries, working notes and photographs dating from the 1920's. 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 a selection of ceramic, glass, jewellery, textiles and calligraphy from renowned and emerging artists and crafts people from the local area and further afield. Work on sale in our shop would appeal to both collectors or those seeking a unique affordable gift. We also carry a range of publications from both the Crafts Study Centre and other publishers, along side greetings cards and postcards. Purchases can be made in person at the Crafts Study Centre or by telephone.
