August Craft Month 2016

August Craft Month 2016

Welcome to August Craft Month 2016: the largest celebration of contemporary craft in Northern Ireland. With the print guide currently winging its way to numerous locations across Northern Ireland, Craft NI is proud to mark the 10th anniversary of our annual region-wide celebration of craft.

Back in 2007, the August Craft Month guide was launched to help promote 25 amazing craft events occurring throughout August, including established signature events Creative Peninsula and Craft Fest, and we're delighted they are still central to the programme of activity.

Little did we expect that it would grow to encompass the huge number and variety of events and activities that it does today.

Since its launch, August Craft Month has grown year on year, and we're delighted to work with a diverse range of wonderful August Craft Month partners - thank you for your enthusiastic engagement.

And of course, a massive thank you to the audiences who explore, engage, and participate in August Craft Month year after year. Without your continuing support, August Craft Month simply would not exist.

Here's a little taste of August Craft Month is all about.

Right now, you can browse our extensive August Craft Month 2016 guide right here on this very website – where we have showcased each and every event, workshop, talk, demonstration and exhibition submitted. Just scroll down to the listings at the bottom and click on the links to get planning! To book in for any of the events, please contact each venue and organiser, as detailed under each event heading when you click through the links.

Please note that the Issu below is only a digital version of the print guide, and no booking can be made through it.


We'll be harnessing the power of social media too, so please do follow us on Twitter, 'like' us on Facebook, snap us on Instagram, or pin us on Pinterest to keep up to date with all things August Craft Month!

August Craft Month 2016 is brought to you in association with Invest NI and the Arts Council of Northern Ireland.
