Crafts Council's Young People's Meetings

The Crafts Council’s Young People’s Program is a London-based network of 16-25 year olds who are interested in craft and making.

Our network of 16-25 year olds brings together those who are passionate about craft and making to co-produce projects and events with us at the Crafts Council, and in doing so help shape the future of craft in the UK.

Join us at our monthly get-togethers if you love to make, or are just keen to find out more – all backgrounds and experience levels are welcome! We’ll be holding monthly get-togethers both at the Crafts Council and out and about at other venues. 

Crafts Council's Young People's Meetings

Here's what we get up to:

  • Trips out, such as behind the scenes tours, studio visits, screenings and talks
