The Crafts Council is looking for volunteers to support its annual Collect Fair being held at Somerset House in London, from 27 February - 1 March 2020.

Collect presents an unrivalled opportunity to see and buy exquisite craft-led works by artists and makers represented by British and international galleries. Filling three wings of Somerset House, Collect profiles the exceptional skill and intellectual rigour behind contemporary craft, featuring works in ceramics, glass, metal, wood and textiles alongside makers working in non-traditional materials with experimental techniques.

Collect forms a key part of the Crafts Council’s work to make the UK the best place to create, see, collect and learn about contemporary craft. To find out more about Collect and the Crafts Council, visit the Collect website.

The Crafts Council would welcome applications from enthusiastic, friendly, professional and confident individuals who are keen to gain experience in the world of art fairs, the craft & design sector and events management. It would also like to speak to those looking for work experience as part of a related undergraduate course. Events experience desirable.

You will need to be committed to at least four half-days, with the possibility of late nights, between 24 February - 2 March 2020.

Interviews will be held at the Crafts Council’s offices in London on Tuesday 11 February 2020, and a briefing day on Thursday 20 February 2020.

To apply, please download the information pack with the Volunteer Specification and full details of how to apply from the Crafts Council's website.
