Commissioning Info

The Bluecoat Display Centre Liverpool has a wealth of knowledge on local and national artists and we are able to facilitate a broad range of commissions,- from creating the perfect living space in your home through to commercial projects with architects and designers.

Now is the time to consider the possibility of purchasing a unique one-off commissioned piece of contemporary applied-art work to enhance your living, work or a public space.

We can advise on many levels from assisting on the selection of the artists for the commissions through to total project management.

The highly individual nature of the work sold at the Bluecoat Display Centre means that our craftspeople can create the perfect bespoke bookcase for that difficult space at home or a dramatic forged metal railing for a new public square to the clients specific requirements.

Display Centre staff liase between the maker and the customer on a daily basis. We are very experienced in offering help and advice to source the correct style of work initially, and then to guide the client through the commissioning process in consultation with the maker. The Crafts Council Photostore and the Display Centre database give staff and clients access to thousands of images for their research covering all craft disciplines: wood, ceramics, textiles, glass, jewellery and paper

Our exhibition programme has led us to work with people on developing individual collections and assisting national museums in finding pieces for public collections. The scale and range of the craft work available varies enormously from wedding rings to site specific pieces to enhance and humanise a new city centre development.

Commissioned items can be tailored to meet your budget or schedule for no additional charge. call to arrange a consultation.
