“We’re celebrating a decade of appreciation for the artists and makers that pour their heart and soul into their craft; a decade of the public supporting the wealth of local talent we’re lucky to have on our doorstep; and a decade of the evolution of the craft sector in this county,” Cork Craft Month Operations Manager Maeve Murphy said. 

“All of our exhibitions, from ‘We Are Cork’ that showcases our members’ works across the board, to ‘Emerge’, which highlights the next generation of creative brilliance have a part to play as they celebrate what we love about the past 10 years of Cork Craft Month, while making us aware of the new and exciting prospects in store.” 

The complete Cork Craft Month 2019 brochure is available to view online at www.corkcraftanddesign.com, with workshops, talks, exhibitions and demonstrations taking place across the county.
