Volunteer at London Craft Week 2018

Published
Monday 19 March 2018

London Craft Week is looking for new recruits to join the team from Wed 9 to Sun 13 May 2018. 

Launched in 2015 London Craft Week aims to showcase creativity and craftsmanship across Art, Fashion, and Design, celebrating the unsung heroes both established and emerging from each. 

Since our inception, the week has doubled in size. This year there will be over 200 events, covering 50+ craft disciplines from musical instrument making to tapestry weaving and spectacle making. Check out the full list of events at www.londoncraftweek.com/programme.

Every year volunteers play a big part in creating a very special atmosphere at London Craft Week by helping visitors to get the most out of the week. By joining the LCW team as a volunteer, you help us by being the onsite presences at each event, dealing with visitor queries, occasionally assisting with any event logistics such as ticketing/guest list, and supporting the individual event runners by being the direct contact to liaise with where any LCW team support is needed. 

We will make every effort to ensure you gain valuable experience in working behind the scenes at a not-for-profit events organisation while having lots of fun!

You will be required to attend a half-day training session on Thursday, April 19th between 13:30 and 15:30. This training session will serve as an introduction to LCW and will cover the different aspects of the volunteer role.

We would ideally like someone to commit to volunteering for the whole period of the 9-13th May, however, we are open to working with your schedule and the hours that are possible for you.

We reimburse reasonable travel expenses and lunch against receipts - refreshments will be available at the office additionally.

If you are interested in learning more about the not-for-profit world of art festivals, and/or are interested the craft sector, please send your CV and a brief covering letter to Saskia@londoncraftweek.com.
