Calling All Contemporary Makers: Top Drawer opens entries for the 12th edition of its CRAFT sector

With their work contributing an astounding £3.4bn to the UK economy*, there’s no doubt that the time of contemporary makers is now.

Presenting a unique opportunity for work to be seen by retailers, interior designers and hospitality specialists in the lead-up to the industry’s most fruitful time, Christmas, the 12th edition of CRAFT will be returning to Top Drawer 13-15 September, showcasing an extraordinary selection of pieces from contemporary makers and creators.  

Rosey Blackmore, Merchandise Director at TATE Enterprises explains the importance of attending Top Drawer stating, “The combination of well selected, high calibre content and a user friendly fair layout that is carefully organised by product category makes Top Drawer an unmissable date in the buying calendar.”

Of their time exhibiting at the most recent show, Edit Juhasz of Edit Juhasz Ceramics said, “It’s one of the best trade show in UK with great companies and professional buyers.”

Echoing similar sentiments Joan Aysuadé, Founder of MATERIA RICA said, “I’ve participated several times in CRAFT. I feel supported by the Top Drawer team and my business is developing and growing each show by being surrounded by small designer makers’ and their high quality and authentic work. The buyers attending are a selection of our key customers – larger stores, museums and independent businesses.”

Applications to exhibit at CRAFT are open now and makers across Ceramics & Glass, Fashion & Textiles, Jewellery and Mixed Media are encouraged to apply before 1st May 2020 via Elizabeth.Hazelton@clarionevents.com or +44 (20) 73848064.
