The curated Crafts Council graduate show, Future Edit, has moved to a virtual shopping platform, going live today and running till the end of January.

Work by the 44 selected BA and MA graduates is diverse, including characterful knitted creatures, collapsible colourful vessels, masks made using micro algae and elegant twisted rope gold jewellery. With graduate degree shows cancelled, the Crafts Council adapted too, giving graduates the chance to launch their work to industry, media and the public. This is the council’s first selling show and they hope it will encourage people to buy pieces for themselves or as gifts while supporting a craft maker.

The makers have been selected for their creative flair, thoughtful design and skilled execution.
