Britain is revered the world over for the quality and integrity of its design, art and crafts. Across the UK, there are thousands of designer-makers with a passion for designing and making the things we sometimes take for granted. From everyday objects to statement pieces, Britain’s designer-makers bring passion, dedication and creativity to everything they do. The resulting work is not only functional but it brightens our world!
And yet, British designer-makers often go unnoticed. We want to celebrate their determination and creativity, to give them a voice, to put them on the winner’s podium!
