The Association for Contemporary Jewellery

is devoted to the promotion, representation, understanding and development of contemporary jewellery in the United Kingdom and abroad.

Founded as a membership association in 1997 and registered as a Limited Company in 2006, it recognises a need to foster discussion, debate and critical review and interaction amongst its members. To this end we organise conferences, lectures, seminars, workshops and an annual general meeting for our members. Our regular newsletter, findings, features reviews, information, comment, book offers and discounts and is of benefit to both our members and the wider public. We also produce a monthly e-bulletin featuring news and opportunities.

We welcome as members practising jewellers, associated designers and crafts people, educators, students, gallery owners and retailers, museum curators, critics and collectors - indeed, anyone with an interest in contemporary jewellery.

Join Handmade in Britain for the 14th edition of Handmade Chelsea
 
Working at the moment might not be easy that's why it's important to have events to look forward to later in the year and so we would like to invite you to apply for Handmade Chelsea - The Contemporary Craft and Design Fair (13 - 15 November).
 
Taking place just six weeks before Christmas, Handmade Chelsea continues to celebrate the best in high-end design and craftsmanship from over 100 international and UK-based makers and Artisan Food producers who will benefit from gaining new buyers, press and industry contacts.
 
In support of your application we have waived our application fees when you come to apply online and added something extra - monthly instalments to those selected for the show. As spaces are highly sought-after in each discipline, we recommend applying early before the deadline of Thursday 30 April. https://www.handmadeinbritain.co.uk/event/handmade-chelsea-the-cont...

CRAFT IN FOCUS: Cancellation of Wisley Craft Fair

Unfortunately we have had to cancel this year's Spring Contemporary Craft Fair due to be held at RHS Garden Wisley (29 April-3 May). We apologise for any inconvenience and we are very sad that the event will not be taking place this year.

However we have put together a fabulous ‘Virtual Craft Fair’ which showcases all the amazing designer makers you’d normally see at Wisley but you’ll be able to see it all from the comfort of your home! Make sure you take a look at the fair here and help support the craftmakers and designers by getting some of the finest handmade items delivered to your door!

Visit the Wisley Virtual Craft Fair

https://www.craftinfocus.com/next-fair/virtual-wisley

Our hearts go out to all of our exhibitors who have had so many events cancelled. These events are so important to them as it's where they are able to show and sell their work to the public and, as all of you that follow Craft In Focus events know, our events offer the public a chance to meet the maker (as we don't accept anyone selling imported or mass-produced work) and find out about their inspiration and how they create the work. Many of our exhibitors spend most of their working day alone in their workshop or studio and it will be very hard for them not being able to exhibit at events and meet their buyers (and other exhibitors).

Finally if you use Instagram throughout the month of April many of our exhibitors are posting information about other makers whose work they admire using the hashtag #MeetMyFellowExhibitor.

Please check our website for details of our other events and we hope to see you again some time soon.

Other changes to our Calendar

Trentham Gardens, Contemporary Craft Fair - postponed until 24-27 September 2020

Waterperry Gardens, Celebrating Ceramics - cancelled. Returning 16-18 July 2021
