Craft Centre & Design Gallery
The Headrow, Leeds LS1 3AB
One of the first major contemporary craft and design galleries to open in the UK, this Leeds institution promotes a wide range of stunning and inventive crafts, from jewellery and ceramics to textiles and glassware. Exhibitions change regularly – there’s a particularly great showing for gift-buying time at Christmas – and wares are beautifully presented. It’s also slap-bang next to Leeds Art Gallery, so makes a sensible stop on the way in or out for art lovers.
