Design-Nation: future thinking for design & craft

Design-Nation is a portfolio of some of the most acclaimed and innovative designers and craftspeople from across the UK.

News update July 2024.  Twentytwo fantastic new design and craft talents have joined our Membership Portfolio this summer. Find out more about them in our news stories about Professional and Associate & Graduate joiners.

This month we’re heading to Kew for an inspiring Member Study Day. We’ll be meeting Kew’s Retail Team, having a tour of the new Marc Quinn exhibition and installations, and of course visiting the gardens and glasshouses.

We also launched four new exhibition opportunities for Members in June – watch this space for more news soon!

Champion Us.  Design-Nation does not receive any core funding so we are reaching out to our networks, friends and supporters to help us raise vital funds to continue delivering the special opportunities & programmes that we offer to the design & craft sector. In this challenging climate, an annual or monthly gift, however large or small, will make a huge difference to the 350+ UK design and craft professionals in our network. Become a Patron or Champion. 

Join Us. If you’re interested in taking your creative practice to the next level, our next membership deadline is 1 October, find out more about joining us here.
