Are you a professional craft maker or designer working in County Cork or do you run a gallery or craft shop in Cork County? Then we would love to hear from you!

  • Direct selling opportunities through CCD events — locally and nationally
  • Submit work for Cork Craft Month exhibitions with the opportunity to sell your work there
  • Craft work stocked at the Cork Craft & Design shop in Douglas and online at cork
  • Publicity and promotion through media releases and photo calls throughout the year

Unlike many galleries and other organisations, Cork Craft & Design takes a minimum commission at our pop-up events, assuring the craft worker greater income
