Crafts Council Maker Survey

The appetite for buying craft has increased dramatically over the past ten years, and we want to see the market grow even further. To this end, the Crafts Council and eight national partners* have already surveyed thousands of consumers - now we want to understand makers’ side of the story.

This short survey only takes 10 minutes to complete. If you have already completed the Crafts Council 2019 Makers Survey, it will be even shorter.

The closing date is Friday 31 January 2020.


We want to understand:

1. How best to stimulate the market for craft
2. How best to support UK makers to sell.
3. How best to grow the market for craft.

Many thanks in advance for your input to this important survey.
The report and findings will be available in May 2020. For more information about the study see our summary here.
