. The modern entranceway leads into a large, well lit, space over two floors, in the basement floor there is also a small space for exhibitions, which makes it eminently suitable for achieving its goals. It is a place to see contemporary craft, learn about it and buy it, there is also a dedicated section for books about British craft and even possible to request a commission to your own personal taste if there is a piece that you like but would like in a different colour, etc. There is normally a new exhibition every few weeks allowing one to see different kinds of craft by established and new craft makers in many kinds of fields. The gallery is also available for corporate hire.

As craft consists of such a wide variety of disciplines it means that there is something for everyone here, whether you are more interested in ceramic bowls or a new piece of jewellery. Every item includes the name of the maker which brings more individuality to it, and gives it a more personal feel. For example, there are paintings, bowls, cups, candle sticks, and much more, enough to turn your own living room and kitchen into a personal haven for art and craft. To make it even more unique you can buy your own ceramic birds, strange creatures with rabbit ears or humorous creations such as ‘With daggers drawn’ two small sculptures of two humanoid figures which on one side fit together but on the other side each has a arm and hand holding a dagger. On the top floor there are many more everyday items including furniture while the basement floor holds many items of jewellery, art, ceramics and a bookcase full of books about British craft makers and their work. Beyond this is a small room for the constant exhibitions taking place.

Any artist who is based in the UK can apply to be a member of the CAA and have their work exhibited and sold here, or alternatively patrons of crafts can become a friend of the gallery for £40 a year and receive invitations to exclusive events as well as get a 10% discount on all purchases apart from furniture and books. Another unique feature of this gallery is that all members of the CAA are listed on the website along with a CV and a photo of an example of their work, thus allowing you to learn about the artist who created your work and remember their name. In 2013 will be the 65th anniversary of the CAA and as such there are plans to expand and increase their capacity to organize regional events, and also to present to an emerging craft maker a Contemporary Applied Arts Scholarship Award. In the meantime why not visit here and start your own personal collection of British craft.
