Showcasing the best of craft and design handmade in Limerick, the Limerick Craft Hub is a vibrant addition to the city’s creative culture. A City of Culture Legacy Project in conjunction with the Limerick Craft Collective, this is the newest and largest craft venue in the city, offering a contemporary craft shop, gallery, classroom and open studios with the opportunity for people of all ages to engage with craft.

Gathering a diverse range of excellent quality craftsmanship in homewares, clothing, jewellery, wall art, sculpture, books and cards, toys and local food, the Limerick Craft Hub supports over 30 local craft businesses in textiles, ceramic, wood, paper, food, candles, ironwork & jewellery making.

Creating a destination for craft in Limerick to both local and tourist, it is the ideal place to get a gift or get crafty at one of the many craft classes and workshops available, as well as see craft being created in the Ceramic, Feltmaking or Silversmith Studios.

Bookings are now being taken for Jewellery Making & Ceramics for both Adult and Children, with Silk Painting and Chicken Scratch Embroidery for Adults to name but a few. Kid’s Holiday Camps and Special Occassion Workshops will also feature in the ongoing educational aspect the Limerick Craft Hub offers.

The Limerick Craft Hub was officially launched by Mike Fitzpatrick, Director, City of Culture, on Thursday, August 21st, 2014 at 7:30pm, in the Hub building at 9, Lower Cecil Street, Limerick.

“The Limerick Craft Hub is an important and exciting legacy project for Limerick City of Culture. Working with over 30 local craft practitioners, it not only provides a retail outlet for the public to engage with handmade Limerick product but also a gallery, classroom and studio space to support development of craft in Limerick. I look forward to seeing this project prosper in the future and encourage everyone to visit the space.” Mr. Fitzpatrick commented.

Project Manager, Clare Jordan, said “ We are delighed with the enthusiastic reaction from both customers and the craft makers, and look forward to welcoming local, tourist and corporate visitors, as we grow this fantastic opportunity for Limerick’s cultural, civic and enterprise development”
