The Crafterdark - Arts and Crafts Festival will be held on the 9th of August, from 6pm until midnight, at the stunning Laguna Walk in SmartCity Malta. The event is aimed at bringing together artists and individuals involved in crafts from all over the island to sell handmade wares of mixed media.
The not-for-profit event is the first of many upcoming Crafterdark festivals, with another two events already planned for later this year. The fresh concept of events aims to introduce the talent of local artists, artisans and craftspeople to the general public by providing a unique setting to showcase and sell their handmade products, created by using various mastered mediums.
The festival will exclusively showcase locally made products from genuine local artisans. Youngsters will also have the opportunity to create their own works of art for free at the ‚ÄėKids‚Äô Area‚Äô. At the festival, shoppers can find the most memorable and original gifts for everyone on their list, whether it‚Äôs a whimsical piece of pottery, a handmade occasion card, one-of-a-kind jewellery, a carved piece of woodwork or a striking piece of fine art. In fact, all items are available for purchase directly from the artists.
With a large number of stalls already confirmed, this series of events will surely be a success. The venue offers ample parking spaces, free entrance and live spectacles of dancing water and light in SmartCity Malta‚Äôs majestic fountains. Therefore, the surroundings will add to the dynamic atmosphere guaranteed on the night.
The festival marks a great opportunity for artists and festival-goers to experience one of Malta‚Äôs best-loved locations while enjoying live performances from a local burlesque dance troupe and fire artistes, artisanal food sampling in the ‚ÄėCulinary Section‚Äô and the chance to talk to the artists while they demonstrate their crafts.
