Beacons & Surround Crafts Week 18th – 26th June 2022
Arts & Crafts Trail to 60 craft centres, galleries, shop windows,
churches & community centres.
Exhibiting, Demonstrating, & running Workshops.

Beacons & Surround Crafts Week is supported by a grant from the Brecon Beacons National Park’s Sustainable Development Fund. The fund supports projects that help improve quality of life in communities – protecting and enhancing the local environment, helping people to live healthy and fulfilled lives now and in the future.

Following this successful funding from the BBNP’s Sustainable Fund we received a wonderful number of expressions of interest from many Crafters, Craft Groups, Galleries, and Community Centres, in the Beacons and Surrounds, to participate in the ‘week’ long Crafts Celebration. These venues will be published in a brochure and map, and there will be road signs to guide you around the map.


We will add a list of venues to this page prior to the start of the event.

The participants will be doing some or all of the following:

  1. Run workshops 

  2. Open home/studios.

  3. Open their own gallery/craft shops.

  4. Have invited guest makers to exhibit or run workshops at their venues
    NB* please book any workshops at these venues directly with the venue unless specified otherwise.

Remember in this first year of the yearly festival it is FREE to be included in:

  • Beacons & Surround Crafts Brochure

  • Crafts Map & Trail

  • Website

  • Video

Leading up to this event, we have had various workshops across the area, as well as some zoom sessions and we are busy producing videos to add to the Big Skill You Tube site.

For more information, please email    Please note, registrations are now closed for 2022.

The project will also be offering the opportunities to provide placements, which besides helping you to set up and market your venue, crafts, & goods, will also provide opportunities for the participants to upskill and gain an Agored Cymru OCN qualification ‘Crafts From Waste’.
