Sydney Craft Week 2019

Festival program launch

Friday 11 October – Sunday 20 October

Pressing PLAY on the third annual Sydney Craft Week Festival!

We are excited to present a jampacked showcase of making that is inspiring, innovative and most importantly playful. The whole Australian Design Centre team has loved working with the creative community to pluck the very best from across Sydney and develop a program that offers so much for all ages and levels of interest in craft and design in all its many guises.

150+ events this year include: 37 exhibitions, 6 talks, 57 workshops, 13 markets and retail events, 30 open studios and 13 live demonstrations.

The festival theme for Sydney Craft Week 2019 is PLAY. This is reflected in our choice of cover star for 2019, Vanessa Ion's crocheted creation 'Cynthia the Australian White Ibis. 

More information on all events is available at

The Sydney Craft Week printed program will be distributed across participating venues or grab one from Sydney Craft Week HQ at Australian Design Centre.
