A huge event with exhibitors and workshops
If you are into crafts or need to buy some gifts, then this Craft Week is an event for you! There are many different kinds of crafts at this event and Sydney Craft Week is an inspirational festival all about creating and showcasing amazing contemporary craft.
This ten-day festival celebrates the style and beauty of the hand-made articles. Most events are free to enter with ticketed events managed by host organisations and participating venues.
This is an initiative of the Australian Design Centre and is supported by a City of Sydney Festivals grant. This year, the festival will be full of events for everyone. Some of these include exhibitions, talks, workshops, retail events (including markets), open studios and live demonstrations.
There will also be events with food and drink, fun family-friendly events for the school holidays and lots more. This year's theme is "mindful making" and it examines how working with your hands can give you the chance to connect, relax, focus and create.
At the Eastern Suburbs Craft Week, there will be so many exhibitions and you can see full details of all the exhibitors by clicking on this link.
The Ambassador for the Sydney Craft Week for 2018, is Karen McCartney, author and editor. She will be leading a panel of five Sydney makers in a discussion at ADC for Craft Up Late on Tuesday 9th October.
At Australian Design centre (ADC), they make handmade articles. For the past 50 years plus, they have presented craft in all its forms, as well as supporting the makers and designers of these crafts. ADC is just one part of an extraordinarily varied eco-system of making articles in Sydney and this event helps to display so many of the city's talented makers.
The bulk of the Sydney Craft Week is "collaboration, creativity and community participation."
Sydney Craft Week is an initiative of the Australian Design Centre. ADC is a not for profit organisation showcasing and supporting in vogue craft and design. All donations, whether they are large or small, will help ADC to continue to give opportunities like the Sydney Craft Week. It will also help to support the exhibitions, events and touring programs currently running.
