An invaluable resource centre for craft practitioners, historians and theorists, the CSC is home to a unique and internationally-acclaimed collection of 20th and 21st century British craft artefacts. The objects collections centre on the fields of calligraphy, ceramics, textiles, furniture and wood, and are accompanied by archives which include diaries, correspondence, photographs, catalogues and working notes from crafts practitioners and crafts organisations.
