The inaugural Sydney Craft Week will be held from Friday 6 to Sunday 15 October 2017.
Bringing together the creative diversity of Sydney’s contemporary craft community, Sydney Craft Week is a ten-day festival celebrating the beauty of the hand-made 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.
Expressions of Interest:
