London Craft Week is looking for new volunteers to join the team from Monday 8th – Sunday 14th May 2023.
From the latest developments in material innovation and digital craft to collectable objects and heritage skills, LCW presents a rich and diverse programme of events from more than 750 makers and brands. 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 on-site presence at events, dealing with visitor queries, occasionally assisting with event logistics such as ticketing and guest lists, and supporting the individual event organisers by being the direct contact to liaise with where any LCW team support is needed. We are looking for presentable, confident and enthusiastic individuals who have a keen interest in craft, design and 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 and we offer a modest lunch allowance and travel expenses.
If you would like to get involved, please send your CV and/or a brief statement of interest to email@example.com by midday on Friday 14 April 2023. Please include ‘Volunteer’ in the Subject line.
