The Society of Designer Craftsmen is very proud to present its ‘Designer Craft Showcase’ at the RBSA Gallery in Birmingham. Come along to see some wonderful craft as well as to find out who we are, what we do and how to join us.

Established in 1887, with William Morris as one of its early presidents, the Society of Designer Craftsmen continues to promote and support the work of creative thinkers, designers, and makers who innovate through the exploration of materials and skills in their own field.

Combining inventive design with supreme craftsmanship, more than 20 SDC Members have been selected to showcase their original and inspiring work including textiles, ceramics, sculpture, glass, furniture and boxes, silver and jewellery. All works are for sale and commissions can be undertaken so the exhibition offers an ideal opportunity to acquire original pieces handmade by some of the UK’s finest craftspeople working today. There will also be an information area about the Society and its links to the Midlands, and SDC members on hand to explain more about the Society and answer any questions.

The Showcase is in two parts: In Gallery 1 ‘Ultimate Designer Craft’ will demonstrate the design and craftmanship of SDC members at its absolute best. It will contain a curated display of works across a range of crafts which exemplify excellence and creativity.

In Gallery 2 ‘Designer Craft at Christmas’ will contain a wide range of works of unique handmade pieces, from both well-established as well as up-and-coming SDC members, which are for sale and immediate take- away at prices ranging from a few pounds up to £500.

There will also be an area about the SDC, its past, present and aims for the future, as well as how to join us. SDC members will be present everyday to explain our work, answer questions and give an insight into the world of contemporary craft making.
