About Us

Craft in the City was conceived by Nottingham artist Anna French of Fizgig Glass in order to broaden the appeal and accessibility of craft making and bring that skill back into the heart of Nottingham.

It looks to continue the hand-crafting tradition which is embedded in the history of the region, through demonstrating and promoting the time, skill and dedication of the region's designers and makers who create high quality, affordable products.

In line with that, Anna wanted to develop a stage for designers and makers to exhibit and sell their products so the December 2011 Art and Craft fair was born.

The Craft in the City team consists of Anna, graphic and website designers David Hope and Julian Phillips from Designs of Hope.
