talent, precision and passion

Design-Nation is delighted to return to London Craft Week, presenting a digital-only exhibition, through original film, this online showcase and a programme of talks and studio visits – all accessible online and free. Recordings of these events are all here.

Our Multi-Talented exhibition selects new work created over the past 18 months that celebrates the stories of 25 selected makers and their outstanding work – craft that is produced with heart as well as hands. The important questions driving these makers are: What makes great craft? And what drives makers to keep creating?

Our exhibitors are drawn from multiple disciplines, showcasing the diversity and depth of talent in the Design-Nation portfolio. From Aberdeenshire to Cornwall, and Northern Ireland to East Anglia, by way of Northern Wales and Sussex, Design-Nation presents an impressive array of heartfelt craft, designed and made with talent, precision and passion. Those marked with stars * are new to our portfolio this year.
