Call for Participants - Share your craft voice with August Craft Month

Community 22-Jul-2020 - 25-Aug-2020

Share your craft voice with this short activity for August Craft Month and Craft NI.

As part of keeping the profile of NI craft and makers high, particularly during August, we’d love to see some clips from makers on these themes:

Craft in 5 Words or My Favourite Craft Object. 

Upload a short video clip with ‘Craft in 5 Words’ or ‘My Favourite Craft Object’ and we will share it with our online August Craft Month audience.

We will feature each maker on our social media platforms with links to your own accounts. Introduce yourself & your practice to a wider audience of craft lovers, our aim is to encourage new connections and all important sales. We are hoping it will connect the craft buyer to you, while highlighting the high quality and beautifully diverse range of Northern Irish Craft. Clips will be shared in partnership with Cork Craft & Design’s Cork Craft Month for a wider reach of audiences.

Watch these samples from our own Craft NI Director Katherine McDonald, applied maker Sharon Adams and Craft NI Gallery manager Lotus de Wit to inspire you!



Have a look and get involved if you feel like sharing your craft voice.

Craft in 5 Words’ or ‘My Favourite Craft Object’ videos maximum - 2 minutes. 

Record the clip wherever you feel comfortable, your studio or somewhere with a nice view!

Please email your clip to: imagescraftni@gmail.com

Please include in your email:

  • Name or business/maker name
  • General location or studio address (if you are happy to make it public)
  • Links to your website, social media, etc


As we are partnering with Cork Craft and Design for Cork's Craft Month here is a lovely example from Cork-based maker Rosemary Kavanagh on work from her teacher, Armagh-based Alison Fitzgerald.
