Get Ireland Making is a new initiative led by Design & Crafts Council Ireland as part of a Government-led interagency campaign to support Ireland’s cultural and creative practitioners. Supported by Creative Ireland and Healthy Ireland it aims to share the skills of our talented craftspeople and designers with communities across Ireland.

Working together with our partners across Government and with RTÉ and other cultural organisations, our ambition is to engage the public and the design and craft community in activities designed to support wellbeing and build resilience during a very challenging time for our country.

DCCI is commissioning makers across Ireland to share their knowledge of materials and process through fun and engaging activities for children, young people and adults.

A broad range of craft disciplines, including weaving, printing, basket making, jewellery, ceramics and much more will be covered during these exciting, immersive sessions. RTÉ is supporting the promotion of these activities through www.rte.ie/culture and its social media channels using #createdontcontaminate.
