The programme comprises more than 200 events and activities taking place this August throughout Northern Ireland.

Meadhbh McIlgorm, project officer of Craft NI said, “In a time of austerity and funding cutbacks for the arts it is wonderful to see the rich and diverse programme of events on offer this year. It encompasses exhibitions, workshops, demonstrations, talks, craft fairs and much, much more.”
