Looking for Mother’s Day Gift Ideas?
Sunday, March 30th is Mothering Sunday and our annual day for celebrating mothers and all those who have had a maternal role in our lives. If you are still looking for gift ideas, we have some suggestions of where to find gifts of NI craft.
Locally designed, handmade pieces are particularly special gifts. Not only is each piece unique, there is also a strong tie to the maker and a sense of place often evident in their creative inspiration, materials or designs.
Browse the Craft NI Directory to see a range of incredible craft items including distinctive jewellery, textiles, one off pieces, and decorative pieces for the home. The Directory gives you links to where you can contact individual makers, outlets where you can purchse their work (including online outlets where available). See what's on the Directory HERE.
Check out the Craft NI Craft Map. You can use the search facility to find outlets stocking ranges of high quality craft from locally based designer-makers, or for open studios who offer gift vouchers (a craft experience like a workshop can be a great gift), or see what's in your area to take a trip.

Make your own. While this may be an idea for next year, bear in mind that many designer-makers offer workshops to give you a chance to flex your own creative imagination and learn new skills. Find our more about how to find craft workshops that may appeal HERE.
