Call for Artisans – Could your Artisan workshop be the next Économusée?

5 January 2021


Following on from the successful Northern Periphery Programme projects entitled “Économusée Northern Europe”, “Économusée International” and “Économusée Craft Reach”, the Causeway Coast & Glens Heritage Trust (CCGHT) wants to hear from artisans located within the Causeway Coast & Glens and Mid & East Antrim Borough Council areas who are keen to join the Économusée Network.

CCGH aims to develop a new Économusée workshop by March 2021, which will in turn help create socio-economic opportunities in rural communities and create new and enhanced tourism, visitor, employment, and business development opportunities.

There are currently ten unique Économusée workshops in N.Ireland; Broighter Gold Rapeseed Oil in Limavady, Scullion Hurls in Loughgiel, Steenson’s Jewellers in Glenarm, Hillstown Brewery in Ahoghill, Ursa Minor Bakehouse, Broughgammon Farm and North Coast Smokehouse in Ballycastle, Hot Milk Forge in Martinstown, Audrey Kyle Art in Islandmagee and the Creamery Can in Glarryford.

To obtain an application pack including criteria please email tierna@ccght.org

Applications should be submitted by post to CCGHT 27 Main Street Armoy, Ballymoney BT53 8SL or emailed to tierna@ccght.org before 4pm on Friday 15th January 2021.

The envelope or subject line in the application pack should be titled ‘Economusee Application’

To discuss this application call Tiérna on 07595413239 or email tierna@ccght.org.

Please note a shortlisting process will take place followed by a site assessment visit to potential workshops (adhering to COVID-19 guidelines). Successfully shortlisted applicants will then be subject to a Feasibility Study which will hopefully see them progress to be incorporated into the Économusée Network.
