Craft is defined as a skill requiring manual dexterity. The best examples of craft objects combine a structural integrity of material and form and are beautifully made.
Craft is often regarded as the more accessible side of the art world as its results can be not just useful or beautiful, but both.
Renewed public interest in the handmade and sustainable has brought a new lease of life to the craft sector in the UK. Contemporary Applied Arts provides a central London gallery for over 350 members who have chosen the creative path. The big names in craft show at CAA as well as selected newcomers.
Browse in the gallery and shop where the well-informed staff can help you pick something that is right for you.
