The Craft & Design Collective owns and manages Space CRAFT, a shop, gallery and exhibition area that sells 'lovely stuff' made by local Artist|Designer|Makers.
Space CRAFT is located on the piazza, up the escalator at The Fountain Centre, College Street right in the heart of Belfast City Centre.
Space CRAFT opened in June 2007 and is designed to be a focal point for the commissioning, exhibition, promotion and sale of craft, applied art and design.
With prices ranging from the modest to the more luxurious you will find craft, applied art and design by established and emerging Artist|Designer|Makers that will help you meet all your key purchasing occasions - cards, jewellery, fabulous fashion and interior accessories in our shop and one-off and limited edition pieces in our gallery.
The exhibition area provides a constantly changing programme of exhibitions to provide a feast for the eyes and food for the soul.
With numerous cafés in the vicinity and a piazza and automated musical clock to enjoy Space CRAFT is an ideal place to visit.
Space CRAFT Assistants are Artist|Designer|Makers themselves – their knowledge and experience of the creative process, enables them to give you a special insight into the work on display and the people who make it.
Space CRAFT is a non-profit taking social economy enterprise. Buying 'lovely stuff' from us directly supports local Artist|Designer|Makers.
