The European Artistic Crafts Days will be celebrated across Europe on 1, 2 and 3 April 2016. Led by an initiative developed in France for the last ten years, in 2016 special events such as exhibitions, ateliers, craft tours, workshops and masterclasses will be held in crafts studios and venues in 19 countries.
The Institut National des Métiers d’Art (National Institute of the Arts and Crafts), or INMA, has been coordinating the Artistic Crafts Days in France for more than ten years. The European Artistic Crafts Days are intended to support the professional creative sector by organizing special events for the general public. For three days the creative crafts will be featured throughout Europe.
