Nordic Craft Week

Nordic Craft Week is an annual campaign on Facebook celebrating Nordic handicraft. For a week each autumn the Nordic countries come together to showcase both the unique local variations and our shared cultural heritage. Nordic Craft Week was first held in 2018 and is initiated by the Nordic Folk Art and Craft Federation (NFACF).

Celebrates diverse traditions

The Nordic countries have long-standing craft traditions in common. Nordic Craft Week aspires to showcase these rich and diverse traditions and share the joy of making. Over the course of a week each autumn, there is a flood of activity on the Nordic Craft Week Facebook page. These are resources that are open and accessible throughout the year, for inspiration and pleasure for all who are interested.

Nordic Craft Week is a collaboration between the craft organisations in the Nordic countries. Hemslöjden contributes together with The Norwegian Folk Art and Craft Association the Danish Fora, the Finnish Taito, the Icelandic Craft Association, the Faroe Island Craft Association and the Estonian craft association Eesti Rahvakunsti ja Käsitöö Liit. The campaign is initiated by the Nordic Folk Art and Craft Federation (NFACF), established in 1927.
