The Craft and Design gallery is a dedicated space for the decorative arts at the Walker Art Gallery.

On display are over 500 items covering all aspects of the decorative arts. Most of the pieces were made between the 17th and 20th centuries. Many of them have never been on public display before.

In the gallery you can see the objects both on their own and in the context of other cultures and times. Interactive displays complement the objects, explaining how they were made and used.
