Wexford Craft Trail

The hum of the potter’s wheel, the click of the weaver’s shuttle, hammer blows to the anvil and the calm of needlework – all these are the sounds of Wexford’s craftsmen and craftswomen at work in the Wexford Craft Trail.

Across this historic county in the towns, villages and down country lanes, you will find the studios of today’s practitioners of traditional crafts. Wexford Craft Trail embraces much of the fine workmanship to be found countywide.

Share our creative vision, make your own rich discovery of the authentic handcrafts to be found in the area, whilst enjoying the natural beauty and national heritage sites of County Wexford.
