Sydney Craft Week

The second Sydney Craft Week will be held from Friday 5 – Sunday 14 October 2018 and is an initiative of the Australian Design Centre.

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. 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.

This year's theme is Mindful Making.
