Friday 5 - Sunday 14 October 2018

Sydney Craft Week is an inspirational festival that speaks to our fundamental human urge to create, while also showcasing exceptional contemporary craft.

An initiative of the Australian Design Centre, this ten-day festival features a range of exhibitions, workshops, talks and open studios. 

Sydney Craft Week unites the very active craft sector within Sydney's creative community - including ceramicists, jewellers, quilters, knitters and other textile artists, plus timber workers, print makers, leather crafters, Indigenous makers and creatives of all kinds who work with their hands.

Handmade is at the heart of what we do at the Australian Design Centre (ADC). For more than 50 years we have presented craft in all forms and supported makers and designers across the full spectrum of skill and materiality. ADC is just one part of an extraordinarily diverse eco-system of making in Sydney and this new event is our way of showcasing many of the city’s talented makers.

This year, we expect as many or more participants than last year, which had 90+ events across 45+ suburbs of Greater Sydney, including 3 markets, 12+ family-friendly events and 50+ workshops.

The core of Sydney Craft Week is collaboration, creativity and community participation.
