For the past 38 years we have been championing contemporary craft in the vibrant city of Leeds to shine a spotlight on independent makers and their small businesses from across Yorkshire and the rest of the UK. Through an exciting seasonal exhibition programme we highlight the skills behind handmade and share their inspiring stories. Bringing these amazing collections of contemporary craft together under one roof has created a haven for many visitors to escape the stresses of daily life & create mindful experiences. Please help us keep the gallery and the hundreds of small businesses we support alive by donating what you can so we can continue to keep bringing the very best of contemporary craft to you and help us and these creative industries thrive.

We took over the Leeds British Art Show Twitter account yesterday @Unfold_Leeds to share with followers what we were most looking forward to in the Visual Arts this year, who inspired us and what we were up to ourselves especially the special shows running alongside The British Art Show. We loved being involved; it's so important to work together to help encourage visitor growth and brand new audiences to the great city of Leeds.
You can read our blog on The Leeds Inspired website to learn more and if you missed the twitter feed yesterday just follow Unfold_Leeds. Leeds Inspired have been such a wonderful support to us over the years so a huge thank you goes out to them and all of our other fabulous followers, press contacts, customer and visitors alike. http://www.leedsinspired.co.uk/blog/craft-centre-design-gallery
