Sydney Craft Week is the only festival in Sydney dedicated to making by hand. Led by the Australian Design Centre (ADC) and supported by an advisory group of craft sector professionals, Sydney Craft Week brings together contemporary crafts organisations and individuals in a celebration of craft across the city as part of a ten-day festival each year in October. The festival fosters community participation and creativity, with the opportunity for the public to meet artists, buy and learn about craft and get involved in making.
With over 150 events to choose from, attendees can immerse themselves 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.
Participating locations in Sydney include venues in the Sydney CBD, Surry Hills, Darlinghurst, the Eastern Suburbs, Northern Sydney, and Inner West. Most events will be free to enter, but check out the details and listings of events online before attending.
With so many events being held, it’s impossible to mention them all here. Please refer to the official event program here or the event schedule for a full list of events, dates, times, venues, and ticket prices.
