Crafting the Future: A Study into the Resilience of the Craft Sector in Europe

The ‘Study into the Resilience of the Craft Sector in Europe’ aims to understand what resilience means to the different cultures and craftspeople across Europe, what makes and could make the #craft sector resilient now and in the future, and how world changing events of a global pandemic, a war and a cost of living crisis have impacted the sector and in what ways.

As part of the Study, craft makers, those delivering craft related services (e.g. teaching) & people within craft organisations and businesses (e.g. galleries, retailers, event organisers, academic / training institutions, consultants) are invited to complete a questionnaire.


The questionnaire should take no more than 10 minutes to complete. Through questionnaire contributions, interviews and focus groups we hope to define the impressive nature of the craft sector and its ability to adapt and evolve even under the most challenging of circumstances.

Commissioned by World Crafts Council Europe, this Study is one of five in the #CraftingTheFuture series co-funded by the #EuropeanUnion.
