Crafts Council Exhibition: Maker's Eye

What does craft mean to you? The Crafts Council asked 13 brilliant craft makers this question. Each one picked works from Crafts Council Collections to create a ‘visual answer’. The result is Maker's Eye, an exhibition which features over 150 objects – making it the largest ever showcase of objects from the extensive Crafts Council Collections and archives.
