Design & Crafts Council Ireland (DCCI) recognise the critical role that education and training play in the future growth of Irish craft and in the preservation of our cultural heritage. DCCI works as an independent service provider and together with other education providers facilitates the development of education and training programmes to meet the needs of the crafts sector, both current and future.
DCCI's education strategy is to develop knowledge and skills in craft for emerging and current craftmakers, and to contribute to the growth of a high-quality, design-led, sustainable craft industry. DCCI believes that developing the appropriate knowledge and skills of Irish craft makers through a range of targeted education initiatives will help in the continued development of quality design and craftsmanship. We work towards increasing awareness of craft and design as a strong career choice by initiating education and training programmes for children, students, teachers and craft makers that involves authentic, creative engagement.
