Wicklow Crafts

County Wicklow has a long tradition of craftsmanship and creativity in all its forms, and an enduring passion for ceramics, wood, jewellery, metalwork and textiles. This story is one of resilience, tradition, and an unwavering commitment to artistic expression.

Many of Wicklow’s contemporary artisans draw inspiration from nature, finding sources for their imagination and creativity in the lush greenery, meandering rivers and in Wicklow’s rugged coastline. The ancient woodlands, the rhythmic waves of the Irish Sea and the tactile beauty of the Garden county serve as the perfect setting for all our craft artisans.

Ceramics, woodwork, jewellery making and textiles in Wicklow are not merely crafts; they are expressions of the county’s essence. The hands that shape clay, carve wood, fashion jewellery and weave textiles carry forward the legacy of craftsmanship that sets Wicklow’s craft apart, in a harmonious blend of tradition and innovation across a diverse range of mediums all inspired by the Wicklow landscape that breathes in us all.
