Craft CentralPromoting original craft and design is the purpose of this not-for-profit organisation established over the last 25 years. Craft Central have a number of workspaces, workshops and studios in unique central London locations available for full or part-time hire. 'On Show' events and exhibitions, talks and workshops at their St John's Square headquarters help to bring cutting edge craft to a wider audience.
