Craft is MADE for this moment, and your support makes it possible.

You have a hand in keeping craft alive.

Craft helps us find the common threads that are shared by all humans. It helps us understand and embrace our similarities—and our differences. The American Craft Council celebrates and uplifts the broad diversity of American craft and the artists who build American culture and create pathways between people.

With the support of our community, including supporters like you, we advance the value of craft as a cultural icon, connect artists to each other and to collectors, and lift the themes that bind us to one another—with our quarterly magazine, our vibrant website, social media, online and place-based craft weeks, and more. Our Library & Archives also preserve the history of American craft for current and future research and study.

Now, more than ever, craft matters.
