Craft ACT

Craft + Design Centre

Craft ACT: Craft and Design Centre is a not-for-profit membership based organisation which supports artists, craft practitioners, designers and makers at every stage of their careers. We promote and celebrate excellence and innovation in contemporary craft in everything we do – in our retail space, exhibitions, events and membership program.

DESIGN Canberra is the primary outreach program for Craft ACT – a month-long program in November of events, exhibitions and activations with interstate and international connection.

Craft ACT is located in Civic Square and houses a shop and a gallery of exhibitions of contemporary craft and design. We also have an online shop so you can buy beautiful hand made and local products including F!NK, Alison Jackson, Blanche Tilden, Bev Hogg and more.

Membership brings you into the creative, professional community at Craft ACT and connects you into the vibrant contemporary craft and design scene locally and nationally.

DESIGN Canberra acknowledges the Ngunnawal people as the traditional custodians of the ACT and surrounding areas. We honour and respect their ongoing cultural and spiritual connections to this country and the contribution they make to the life of this city and this region. We aim to respect cultural heritage, customs and beliefs of all Indigenous people.
