Beacons & Surround Crafts Week 18th – 26th June 2022

Arts & Crafts Trail to 60 craft centres, galleries, & community centres,

selling, displaying, & 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 would like to have expressions of interest from any Crafters, Craft Groups, Galleries, Community Centres, in the Beacons and Surround to participate in the ‘week’ long Crafts Celebration, next June &  to do some or all of the following:

  1. Run workshops from early in 2022

  2. Open your home/studios during the dates in June

  3. Participate via your own gallery/craft shop in June.

  4. Encourage the craft shops and galleries you are involved in to participate.

  5. If you do not have a home studio or belong to a shop or gallery, you can be put in contact with a shop or gallery, if you’d like to exhibit there instead!

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

  • Beacons & Surround Crafts Map

  • Crafts Map & Trail

  • Website

  • Videos

  • Leaflets

We will help with the publicising of your venue & what you will be exhibiting. Assist with the collation of your information to be included in the brochures, leaflets, website inclusion, press, videos & highlight possible local public transport options.

Leading up to that event we will be holding weekly craft workshops & zoom sessions and producing videos to go onto the Big Skill You Tube site.

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’.
