Showcasing the most innovative and exciting craft practice in the UK today, this exhibition from the V&A marks the 70th anniversary of BBC Woman’s Hour.

Twelve finalists have been selected for their originality and excellence in concept, design and process. 

Through huge hand woven willow structures, darned high street hoodies and bespoke bicycles, to unfired clay installations, futuristic glass figures, and jewellery made with 18th-century pins found in the mud of the river Thames, the finalists explore issues ranging from our consumer culture, to the decline of UK manufacturing, and geopolitics.

The 12 finalists are: Laura Ellen Bacon, Alison Britton, Neil Brownsword, Lin Cheung, Phoebe Cummings, Caren Hartley, Peter Marigold, Celia Pym, Romilly Saumarez Smith, Andrea Walsh, Emma Woffenden and Laura Youngson Coll. Find out more about the artists featured in the show.

The prize seeks to recognise a craft practitioner or designer-maker who is an outstanding artist and who has significantly contributed to craft practice in the last five years. The finalists were selected over the course of eight selection panels by 29 expert judges and clay artist Phoebe Cummings was named the winner of the £10,000 prize.
