Temporary Export Guide

3 May 2023

The Crafts Council have released their Temporary Export Guide to help creatives ship internationally for trade shows, workshops and touring exhibitions.

Exporting your work overseas can help you build new connections and generate sales. Makers looking to grow their business often ship internationally for trade shows, workshops and touring exhibitions. To take advantage of these opportunities you must understand how to transfer your work to and from the UK with documentation.

Find the Temporary Export Guide here, full of vital information, top tips and advice from professionals who’ve been in your shoes.

If you are new to exporting, make sure to also check out the Crafts Council’s International Toolkit.
