About

No event is more important to the celebration of cutting-edge, museum-quality craft in the UK than Collect: The International Art Fair for Contemporary Objects. 

Filling the entire Saatchi Gallery, these exceptional works span the spectrum of modern craft practice, ranging from innovative studio pottery to bold, large-scale installations that push material boundaries and explore pressing social and environmental themes.

Right now, craft in the UK and beyond is benefitting from a resurgence of interest, both artistic and economic, as other arts increasingly look to and draw from craft practices; more and more auction houses are incorporating contemporary craft into their sales; and craft objects are commanding higher prices than ever before.

This 14th edition of Collect will, as ever, showcase a full spectrum of museum-quality making and materials, with the 40 selected galleries bringing work from countries including the UK, USA, South Korea, Japan, France, Norway, Italy, Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands and Sweden. The exhibiting artists span the leading disciplines of jewellery, textiles, ceramics, furniture, metalsmithing, and glass; as well as presenting work in highly specialist areas such as bookbinding, and unusual materials including paper, willow, vellum and lacquer.
