August Craft Month 2017, Northern Ireland

27 July to 31 August

August Craft Month is the largest annual celebration of contemporary craft and the applied arts in Northern Ireland. Co-ordinated by the team at Craft Northern Ireland, the sector leading body for the promotion and development of the design-led contemporary craft industry in NI, and with support from the Arts Council of Northern Ireland, 2017 marks our 11th year of August Craft Month.

We have invited galleries, museums, local councils, craft organisations, arts centres, universities, heritage organisations and individual makers to join us and develop a rich programme of over 200 events and activities taking place this August all across the region.

August Craft Month is an opportunity for all of us to support local designer-makers and promote their work. It’s a wonderful oppertunity for the public to experience, participate in and learn more about contemporary craft through workshops, exhibitions, demonstrations, talks and much, much more.
