Initiated in 2019, Stockholm Craft Week is an international event dedicated to Swedish contemporary crafts. Taking place in Stockholm and neighbouring Värmdö, the programme features events, seminars, artist talks and exhibitions. Private and public galleries, museums and studios also open their doors to the public to showcase expertise in the diverse field of Swedish fine craftsmanship, from porcelain objects to innovative installations.
The result of a collaboration between Konsthantverkscentrum (the Swedish Crafts Centre) and Värmdö municipality, the initiative seeks to raise the profile of Swedish craftsmanship. The first edition welcomed over 20 exhibitions and over 50 different events. Stockholm Craft Week is open to individual craftspeople, galleries, cultural organisations and universities that are linked to contemporary crafts.
