We are moving

We are moving! In 2015 the Craft ACT Shop will move into an exciting new premises in Braddon's Ori Building, located in the midst of the hustle and bustle of Lonsdale Street.

New location, new shop! The Craft ACT Shop at Ori will be the talk of the town with lots of new artists coming on board to make the shop bigger and better than ever. We have lots of surprises in store, including a very exciting fit-out created by some of Canberra's finest artists, designers and craft practitioners!

Launched in 2009, the Craft ACT Shop was established to support artists in their professional practice and provide visitors with the opportunity to purchase high quality, locally made objects of craft and design. Representing over 120 local and national artists, the Craft ACT Shop has a dedicated client base and regularly supplies federal and local government with high profile diplomatic gifts.

In addition to the physical shopfront, the Craft ACT Shop champions and supports artists through a number of initiatives including offsite pop-up events throughout the year and the pod initiative at The Hamlet in Braddon.

Interested in stocking the Craft ACT Shop?

The Craft ACT Shop is calling for local and national craft and design practitioners to place product in our new shop at Ori, which is expected to be launched mid-2015.

We are looking for unique products that showcase the best of Australian craft and design and encourage proposals from artists at all levels of their career. Products must be designed and made in Australia, using handmade or small scale manufacturing techniques.
