Craft Festival Wales, which is funded by Arts Council of Wales, Ceredigion County Council and QEST, will showcase an exceptional handpicked selection of approximately ninety makers from across Wales and the UK – including jewellery makers, potters, furniture makers, textile artists, glassmakers and many more – all selling their finely made unique products directly to the public.

Craft Festival Wales welcomes people of all ages and offers a programme of exciting craft workshops, demonstrations, and masterclasses by some of the UK’s most prestigious makers. Over the weekend at the castle, there will be a Children’s Craft Tent, supported by Llantarnam Grange Arts Centre, National Wool Museum, Coleg Sir Gar and Small World Theatre - offering children the opportunity to get creative while having lots of fun.

As well as the activity over the weekend, Craft Festival Wales presents satellite events throughout the town, running for 4 weeks. Highlights include a ceramics exhibition, Significant Forms, with museum quality ceramics from Wales presented at Oriel Canfas curated by West Wales potter, Peter Bodenham; a Youth Project with QEST and Small World Theatre, a Sculpture Trail presented by Coleg Sir Gar in the castle grounds; The Capital of Craft LIVE (talks in the Manor House) and the Craft Festival Town Trail with six emerging makers presenting new work inspired by the National Museum’s Collection at six venues curated by Oriel Myrddin.
