August Craft Month 2017 Near You!
As August Craft Month 2017 bursts into life, we're thrilled with the diverse range of exhibitions, workshops, talks, fairs, demos and more happening throughout Northern Ireland. This year sees our widest reach yet, and to celebrate, we've teamed up with wonderful makers and venues to showcase August Craft Month around the country.
We asked a number of venues to host display cases featuring different examples of design-led contemporary craft by some of the best designer-makers in NI. This initiative was born from a need to celebrate the fact that this year, August Craft Month is being celebrated by new venues, new makers, and new organisations in many locations that haven't before.
