Market For Craft Research Report22-Oct-2019
Craft NI is partnering with the Crafts Council and seven other partners to undertake a study of the UK market for craft.
The Crafts Council partners from across the UK are working together to investigate the characteristics of the market for craft, responding to what The Crafts Council describes as a “noticeable increase in interest in making, from high end purchases to everyday participation.”We want to understand more about how best to stimulate, support and grow that market. We want to know who’s buying craft, what they’re buying and why, how big the market is, how routes to market are changing now and in the near future, and what kind of infrastructure can best support the market.
