The Swedish Crafts Centre
The Swedish Crafts Centre is a professional organisation for craft artists and makers in Sweden with around 750 members.
The organisation was founded in 1990 with the aim to support practitioners within the field, strengthen the role of the craft artist and enhance the status of crafts in society. Through visibility and by spreading knowledge about Swedish crafts nationally as well as internationally, by providing contacts and commissions, offering courses and initiate dialogue and networking opportunities, the Swedish Crafts Centre works to achieve set goals:
- To strengthen the status of Swedish crafts.
- To achieve an improved financial situation for members.
- To strengthen crafts as an independent field of art and knowledge.
The Swedish Crafts Centre participates in Southern Sweden Design Days with the exhibition Craft + Gastronomy = Craft on the menu.
