Creative Craft Events North Down & Ards

The 16th annual Creative Peninsula event; Northern Ireland’s premier celebration of Art and Craft

This thriving annual event runs from 4 – 13 August 2017 and launches on Friday 4 August with Craft in the Square in Conway Square, Newtownards; a tented village full of Artists and Craftspeople selling and demonstrating their work. Throughout the week there will be Open Studios, Studio Coach Tours, Exhibitions, Workshops, Demonstrations, Art in the Walled Garden and more, all taking place throughout the beautiful and picturesque Ards and North Down Borough.

The region is well known for its many Artists and Makers and during the event visitors will have the opportunity to view their work, purchase or commission a unique piece or have a go in a workshop.
