Craft Victoria

Craft is dedicated to supporting the production and presentation of craft and design. We champion makers from around Victoria, Australia and beyond, via exhibitions that combine mastery of materials with innovative techniques and big ideas and our rich program of festivals, talks, and community events. We offer workshops and on-demand tutorials designed to support makers’ professional development, and join forces with Australian architects and artists to realise ambitious public and private commissions. Craft’s showcase space presents a curated collection of objects—both sculptural and functional— celebrating the breadth and dexterity of contemporary craft.

Our mission is driven by a strong sense of history: the practice of crafting, as old as human nature itself, endlessly reimagined in the hands and minds of makers. We celebrate the shared human impulse to shape the world around us—and a tradition of material ingenuity continually remade.
