What is the purpose of exhibiting at CRAFT?
Fifteen companies, each comprising traditional Japanese craft makers, will exhibit their wares at this event. These companies create traditional craft goods for everyday use in modern day life. It will be their first time to exhibit at a trade fair outside Japan. For these craft makers, it is important for them to display their authentic Japanese works in Britain, a country which values craftsmanship. A few of these companies are sending their craftsmen to the UK for this event, and visitors will be able to view demonstrations by makers of combs, bags and broomsticks. We hope that many people will register to attend CRAFT, not just those already involved in the business side of the crafts industry, or likely to be in the future, but also people with an interest in these crafts.
