The Artistic Crafts Days (Journées des métiers d’art) were created in 2002, upon the request of the French government. They became a european event in 2012, and have been named European Artistic Crafts Days (EACD) since then. They were launched by the Institut National des Métiers d'Art and have become the first international event dedicated to crafts.
They take place every year during the beginning of spring. Crafts studios open their doors to the public and outdoor demonstrations are held with the participation of craftspeople, training schools and museums.
The next EACD will happen in 2022, from march 28th to april 3rd.
Some of the events organized online during the European Artistic Crafts Days of 2021 are still visible below on this page.
