Sydney Craft Week

Handmade in a digital age

The inaugural Sydney Craft Week will be held from Friday 6 to Sunday 15 October 2017 and is an initiative of the Australian Design Centre.
View the full program online here.

Bringing together the creative diversity of Sydney’s contemporary craft community, Sydney Craft Week is a ten-day festival celebrating the beauty of the handmade and the pleasure of making, bringing together Sydney’s contemporary craft community in a city-wide festival for the very first time. Not limited to one material or mode of making, the program features a range of exhibitions, workshops, talks and open studios. 

Sydney Craft Week will showcase the city’s textile artists, ceramicists, metalsmiths, jewellery makers, glass artists, wood workers, furniture makers, leather crafters, paper artists, Indigenous artists and other makers, designers and craft practitioners.

Join us for an insight into the creative process and an opportunity to meet and support local Sydney makers, designers and craft practitioners, as well as the chance to get your hands dirty and learn (or pass on) some new skills.
