The Glucksman’s annual Craft & Design Fair is a highlight of Cork’s cultural calendar and a fantastic opportunity to find that perfect gift this Christmas.
For three days in mid-November, the Glucksman’s award winning gallery spaces will be brimming with beautiful gifts to suit all ages and budgets.
The opportunity to purchase crafts directly from the makers is an experience not to be missed, featuring over fifty leading and emerging craft makers selling their stunning designs in jewellery, ceramics, woodturning, toys, textiles & furniture.
Throughout the Craft & Design Fair weekend, the creative team at the Glucksman will run art workshops in the River Room enabling parents to shop while children have fun making their own craft masterpieces.
These hour-long workshops will be for 5 – 12 year olds and run from 11am – 12 pm and 2pm – 3pm on Saturday and Sunday.
Booking is essential. €8 per child. All materials provided.
