Craft Central

Studio spaces for craftspeople and designer-makers in the heart of Clerkenwell. This charitable organisation offers tenants business training, tailored mentoring, networking opportunities and studio space in a number of formats that fit their needs. Formed in 1970 to give a boost to fine crafts skills in danger of being lost from the area forever, they've been at Cornwell House and Pennybank Chambers since the late seventies. There are regular Showcase exhibitions, Open Studio events, master classes and short courses held at the studios.
