The Glucksman Craft + Design Fair showcases high quality Irish craft and design in the beautiful setting of the gallery’s award-winning exhibition spaces. The Craft + Design Fair has been established since 2008 and has developed into a successful partnership between the gallery, craft makers and designers within Ireland, as well as becoming one of Ireland’s most prestigious fairs.

The Craft + Design Fair offers unique work aimed at a range of budgets and provides you with a wonderful way to buy and give Irish this Christmas. The opportunity to purchase crafts directly from the makers is an experience not to be missed, featuring leading and emerging craftspeople selling their stunning designs in jewellery, ceramics, woodturning, lighting, textiles & new technologies.

This year, a special awards section will honour craft artists in different categories including the River Lee Best Stand award which will provide a craft artist with an opportunity to present a dedicated showcase in the River Lee Hotel. Further information on all awards, exhibitors, institutional partners and additional programmes will be announced shortly.
