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.

The Institute of Making is a multidisciplinary research club for those interested in the made world: from makers of molecules to makers of buildings, synthetic skin to spacecraft, soup to diamonds, socks to cities. Its mission is to provide all makers with a creative home in which to innovate, contemplate and understand all aspects of materials and an inspiring place to explore their relationship to making.

Aged 16 – 25 and interested in craft and making?
We’d like to invite you to help plan and deliver our next Young People’s workshop, which will be part of our Hey Clay! festival in a few weeks’ time. This is a great opportunity to build your experience and gain lots of transferable skills. It’s fantastic for CV building, and if anyone is working towards Arts Award the workshop can be used for arts leadership/arts skill share units in your portfolio.
Hey Clay! is our nationwide free festival of ceramics. Studios, art centres and galleries all open their doors for the weekend to run free, hands on clay workshops for the public throughout the UK. The festival runs from the 23rd to the 25th of March, and is part of the Get Creative festival.
