Iran Craft Week


Iran Craft Week is an event held every year from 10th to 16th June in one of the major cities of the country. The main idea of the event is to connect the ancient traditions of making and designing handicrafts to the modern life. For hundreds of years, Iranian artisans have maintained these traditions while adapting to the rapid global changes. This event is held in cooperation with the Ministry of Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism of Iran and the Center for Cultural and Creative Industries CACIMA. Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, this year’s event will be held virtually. During the event, organizations, brands, institutions, designers, artisans, craftpreneurs, and craftspeople from Iran and other countries come together and exchange ideas in workshops, lectures, master classes, etc. The program is in Persian and English
