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.

Throughout the Craft + Design Fair weekend, the creative team at the Glucksman will run art workshops in the River Room enabling parents to shop and children to have fun making their own craft masterpieces. 5 – 12 year olds. Hour long workshop €8 per child. All materials provided.
