Craftworks Mayo was established in March 2012 as a not-for-profit network of Mayo craft workers and designers. The network was the outcome of a major research and consultation project supported by the key development agencies in County Mayo, to mark the Year of Craft 2011 initiative.
Craftworks Mayo aims to champion and promote quality assessed craft and art designed and made in County Mayo, ensure network members communicate effectively and become highly familiar with each other’s work and to build the commercial skill levels of network members through focused training.
Craftworks Mayo aims to promote all that is truly remarkable in Mayo talent, design and craft manufacture; giving locals and visitors the opportunity to witness how each craft worker skillfully creates each craft piece with love and care. The group plans to work more closely with tourism, enterprise & art organisations in the county and beyond.
