August Craft Month 2021

August 1 @ 8:00 am - August 31 @ 8:00 pm


We are delighted to launch our call-out for August Craft Month, Northern Ireland’s unique celebration of the craft sector, providing opportunities for the public to experience, participate in and learn about Craft.

Craft NI leads on the promotion and communications of all the events, profiling makers, highlighting venues and the work of the Councils, to increase the public’s understanding and appreciation of the work of Northern Ireland’s many talented makers.

August Craft Month 2020 was predominantly online based due to the Covid 19 pandemic, which brought opportunities to hear from international speakers and for makers to show work globally online. By August 2021, we hope that galleries, museums, open studios, and workshop spaces will be open again to the public, but please remember that covid restrictions are likely to apply for some time to come.

This year, we will also be working alongside the Design and Crafts Council of Ireland and Cork Craft & Design to dovetail with Craft Month in the south, a new and exciting opportunity. And while international visitor numbers to the island of Ireland aren’t likely to be at pre-pandemic levels this summer, we know that August Craft Month will add to the positive and exciting range of events for people holidaying at home, and will profile craft Northern Irish craft to wider audience.

Coming soon this summer | August Craft Month 2021 calendar of events!
