So, what's this website all about then?

About the Project

Craft Matters


We know that 17% of the population takes part in a craft activity each year. Craft Matters is an initiative to show this support in a visually exciting way, to demonstrate the enthusiasm and passion contained in that 17% and to convey what craft means to millions of people. At the Crafts Council, we believe that craft plays a dynamic and vigorous role in the UK's social, economic, educational and cultural life, and that everyone should have the opportunity to make, see, collect and learn about why craft matters.

If Craft Matters to you, share it by adding a banner to your blog or website! 

The Crafts Council would like to thank WeMakeWebsites for their help in making this online visualisation of Craft Matters possible.
