Embrace the festive spirit of December with thoughtful choices in gift-giving by exploring the world of creativity, sustainability and craftsmanship all over Europe. As per tradition, we want to share a selection of activities that celebrate craftspeople and their crafts during this special time. 

Browse the enchanting Homo Faber’s One Bauble A Day festive calendar or explore the world of craftspeople and designers at the Christmas market VÆRK hosted by Danish Crafts and Design in collaboration with Design Museum Denmark.

Instagram is a perfect place to discover the Malta Crafts Foundation’s This Christmas, #ChooseLocal! calendar with a selection of products handmade with love by local artisans, a MAD’IN Christmas that explores local heritage professionals for sustainable, meaningful and creative wishes or feast your eyes on the December colour matches by European Craft City Harris Tweed.

Firenze Creativa Christmas by Artex offers online initiatives and in-city experiences for responsible, local, handmade and quality holiday shopping, while Design & Crafts Council Ireland presents Made Local at Gifted, a showcase of products offering the perfect opportunity to support local craftspeople.

Celebrate this season by supporting craftspeople local to you!
