MADE in Kilkenny

MADE in Kilkenny was formed in early 2009 to foster excellence in crafts in County Kilkenny, to encourage the growth of the professional craft industry and to promote the county as a shopping destination for authentic craft, handmade in Ireland. County Kilkenny has long had the reputation for being a hub of creativity, and MADE in Kilkenny’s intention is to add to this reputation. On their website and brochure you will find a guide to various designer-makers living and working in County Kilkenny.

All of the craftspeople involved with MADE in Kilkenny are fulltime professionals working in diverse mediums such as ceramics, glass, leather, basketry, furniture, jewellery, millinery, stone carving, candlemaking, textiles and wood.
