In 2017 the British Craft Pavilion brought 36 makers from around the UK to the heart of East London in the Old Truman Brewery. Working in partnership with Hole & Corner we gave the 36 makers a platform to exhibit their work to over 28,000 international visitors.
For 2018 the British Craft Pavilion returns with an exciting new project on an even larger scale. Partnering with Hole and Corner, 40 makers will be selected to take part in an outstanding display of British craftsmanship.
