The Crafts Council presents Collect, the only gallery-presented art fair dedicated to modern craft and design.

Somerset House is delighted to be welcoming Collect, organised by the Crafts Council.  Now in its 16th year, Collect has been instrumental in defining and growing the market for contemporary craft.

Collect will occupy the large gallery wings at Somerset House that surround the Edmond J. Safra Fountain Court presenting a new environment for Collect exhibitors to contextualise and curate modern craft.

Collect is well-positioned at the start of the international cultural calendar with over 40 galleries from the UK and around the world selling work made in the last five years by the leading craft artists working today. Collect shows the exceptional skill and intellectual rigour behind modern craft – from works in ceramics, glass, metal, wood and textiles to makers working in non-traditional materials with experimental techniques.  

In addition to the main fair Collect Open presents new ambitious craft installations by individual artists and collectives and a lively talks programme explores contemporary craft with leading voices from the worlds of craft, design, architecture, fashion and art.
