SUPPORT US

For a quarter of a century Design-Nation has championed & celebrated the power of craft, design and making.

Our unique industry support provides a special combination of opportunities and programmes that support the evolving needs of the design and craft sector; empowering designers and makers to start, grow, sustain and develop innovative creative and business practices.

Starting up and developing a successful creative career takes a lot of courage, and in this challenging climate, we are reaching out to friends, supporters and wider networks to help us raise vital funds.

Design-Nation is a not-for-profit organisation. We don’t receive any core funding, so 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.

Your donation will directly support the next generation of craft & design talent, and help hundreds of creative businesses take on new challenges and future directions. Read what our members say here.

There are some very special benefits to enjoy as our Patron or Champion, and we hope that by joining you will be a part of these too.

Support our work and help us continue to nurture talent, celebrate craftsmanship and promote the excellence of British design & craft.
