We know that 17% of the population takes part in a craft activity each year. Craft Matters is an initiative to show this support in a visually exciting way, to demonstrate the enthusiasm and passion contained in that 17% and to convey what craft means to millions of people. At the Crafts Council, we believe that craft plays a dynamic and vigorous role in the UK's social, economic, educational and cultural life, and that everyone should have the opportunity to make, see, collect and learn about why craft matters.
