Contemporary Applied Arts

Contemporary Applied Arts is a shop and gallery showcasing and selling unique pieces by British craftmakers.

Shop for handmade textiles, ceramics, furniture, gifts, homeware and more. Look out for the changing programme of art shows that take place in the space.

Contemporary Applied Arts was founded in 1948, as The Crafts Council of Great Britain, preceding the current Crafts Council as the national representative for craft. In 1967, it became the British Crafts Centre, and in January 1985, Contemporary Applied Arts (CAA). 

CAA is a registered charity set up to promote and champion British craft. CAA is the premiere exhibition and retail venue for learning about, appreciating and purchasing contemporary craft.
