London Craft Week is looking for new volunteers to join the team from Monday 9 – Sunday 15 May 2022.
From the latest developments in material innovation and digital craft to collectable objects and heritage skills, this year’s programme includes over 300 events, showcasing work by more than 400 artists, makers and designers, alongside brands and galleries from 26 different countries. Spanning the fields of craft, art, design, luxury, food, fashion and accessories, the week-long festival tells the stories behind some of the world’s most beautiful objects – the material, the maker, the process and the inspiration – through workshops, immersive experiences, pop-up stores and original exhibitions.
Check out the full programme of events here.
Every year volunteers play a big part in creating a 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 an onsite presence at events, dealing with visitor queries, occasionally assisting with event logistics such as ticketing and guest lists, and supporting the individual event runners by being the direct contact to liaise with where any LCW team support is needed. We therefore are looking for presentable, confident and enthusiastic individuals who have a keen interest in the visual arts and have experience with event management, customer service and/or invigilating exhibitions.
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!
If you are interested in learning more about the not-for-profit world of art festivals, and/or are interested in the craft sector, please send your CV and a brief statement of interest to email@example.com by midday on Friday 22 April 2022.
