Satellite program: the 2021 Craft Contemporary satellite program will present diverse projects and events exploring how new ideas are being expressed by today’s makers and the reality of what it means to make by hand.

Makers in residence: Craft are calling for applications from makers who would like to share their practice with our community as part of the Craft Contemporary Maker in Residence program. Based in artists’ own studios, the series of residencies will provide a platform for craft practitioners to share insight into their practice and the processes of making new work.
