Creative Industries – Arts and Crafts

The arts and crafts industry employs over 50,000 people - do you fancy working in art or crafts?

The arts and crafts sector provides opportunities for self-employment as well as employed positions. The Wiltshire & Swindon Cultural Education Partnership provides information and resources to help young people find their creative path.
These careers can involve coming up with your own ideas or following a customer’s design and then creating and selling something. Design involves art and creativity but may also involve technical and engineering skills, depending on the job. This sector is likely to have more jobs in the future and these are less likely to be replaced by automation.
The arts and crafts industry generates £46million for the UK economy
