Callout for Craft Makers, Designers & Consumers in Co. Wicklow
A Five-Year Craft Strategy for Co. Wicklow is currently being developed, with the aim of creating a sustainable craft economy within the county and actively encouraging the awareness, training, development and growth of craft in Co. Wicklow.
Following an open tender, County Wicklow Partnership appointed Arts Leaders Associates, a Wicklow-based creative consultancy, to research and deliver a Craft Strategy for Co. Wicklow 2021-2026.
The strategy will cover a broad range of topics and will be informed by in-depth engagement with Craft Makers/Designers and Craft Consumers from all over Co. Wicklow. A number of semi-structured interviews have already taken place with Wicklow-based and Irish Craft Makers/Designers as well as with Irish and international craft and design organisations.

Arts Leaders Associates are now asking for as many Craft Makers, Designers and Consumers of craft to contribute to this Craft Strategy by completing their Online Surveys, which have been designed to help build a detailed picture of the craft sector in Wicklow.
One survey specifically invites “Craft Makers/Designers” operating in Co. Wicklow to share their thoughts, experiences and challenges while the other is aimed at “Craft Consumers”, and anyone else with an interest in Co. Wicklow craft.
The data from these surveys will be analysed by Arts Leaders Associates, and the findings will directly inform the development of a Craft Strategy for Co. Wicklow. Each survey is expected to take between 20 – 25 minutes to complete.
The deadline for responses is Sunday 30th May, 2021.
