Pathways’, the August Craft Month 2023 exhibition, opens on the 3rd August at Craft NI Gallery, Belfast and will run until the 15th September. Featuring some of the best in contemporary craft, the annual August Craft Month Exhibition aims to celebrate and profile excellence in Northern Irish craft.

We’re excited to share with you the various meanings Pathways holds.
