Sydney Craft Week 2021, Dates, Event Program, Venues & Ticket Prices
With over 200 events in total to choose from, attendees can immerse in a great variety of authentic Australian art. More importantly, it helps raise awareness of the talented individuals in the community who create by weaving, throwing, decorating, and bending.
Sydney Craft Week is an initiative of the Australian Design Centre, and it is supported by the City of Sydney Festivals Grant. An advisory group made up of professionals in the craft sector help bring the event together as well. Each year, the event follows a specific theme, but it always revolves around creativity, collaboration, and community participation.
In 2021, participating locations in Sydney include venues in the Sydney CBD, Surry Hills, Darlinghurst, the Eastern Suburbs, Northern Sydney, and Inner West, among others. Most of the events will be free to enter, but be sure to check out the details and listings of events online before attending.
