Who we are?

The BDC originated as one of this country’s earliest craft galleries in 1959. Since then the BDC has developed into a dynamic independent craft organisation, whose mission is to raise the public’s aesthetic appreciation of applied art and design and the provision of educational lectures, workshops and exhibitions. We are based in the Bluecoat, an arts centre, in Liverpool.

The BDC is now recognised nationally and internationally as one of the UK’s leading galleries specialising in contemporary applied arts, showing and selling some of the finest work made by professional craftspeople from the North West, across the British Isles and beyond. BDC is Liverpool’s only independent contemporary craft gallery and retail space.

The BDC has a reputation established over 50 years, of being one of the Craft Council of England’s selected galleries. It has a regular audience of over 30k visitors per year and is run by a small and close knit team of five employees with the help of four volunteers. BDC is a registered charity with a trading subsidiary.
