Craft Gallery

The Craft Gallery at the Burton promotes and supports over 40 contemporary craftspeople from around the UK. Precious and non precious jewellery sits alongside, ceramics, prints, textiles and metalwork. The craft gallery is the perfect place to see and purchase the very best of contemporary craft. Makers include Svend Bayer, Clive Bowen, Anne Farag, Sarah Young, Amanda Anderson, Bill and Peach Shaw and Hilary Paynter. Craft showcase exhibitions are programmed to run throughout the year, they give The Burton a chance to introduce our visitors to emerging artists and new makers.

The Burton is a member of the Own Art scheme. Own Art is a national initiative that makes buying contemporary art and craft affordable by letting you spread the cost of your purchase over 10 months with an interest free loan. Own Art loans are available for the purchase of contemporary art and craft of any kind, and in any media. That means you can choose more or less anything you want from paintings, prints, drawings and sculpture, to glassware, ceramics, jewellery, furniture and textiles, as long as the work is by contemporary artists, is original artwork and within limited editions of 150.

Own Art is operated by ArtCo Trading Ltd (a wholly owned subsidiary company of Arts Council England) in partnership with Arts Council England, Creative Scotland, Arts Council of Northern Ireland and our credit provider Hitachi Capital Consumer Finance.
