Économusée Craft Reach- Opportunity to quote
Introduction & Background
The Causeway Coast & Glens Heritage Trust (CCGHT) is a partnership organisation set up in Northern Ireland in 2002. The area covered by the CCGHT includes a wide variety of scenic landscapes, important wildlife resources and cultural heritage including three Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB’s): the Causeway Coast AONB, the Antrim Coast and Glens AONB and the Binevenagh AONB.
The Causeway Coast and Glens Heritage Trust (CCGHT) is one of eight partners involved in a 3 year EU Northern Periphery Programme project entitled ÉCONOMUSÉE Craft Reach. This project combines culture, craft and tourism to create an economy platform for craft artisans practising traditional techniques, which in turn helps traditional crafts survive, promote new job opportunities as well as encouraging tourism in rural areas.
Within N.Ireland there are currently six Économusée workshops; Broighter Gold Rapeseed Oil in Limavady, Scullion Hurls in Loughgiel, Steenson’s Jewellers in Glenarm, Hillstown Brewery in Ahoghill, Ursa Minor Bakehouse and Broughgammon Farm in Ballycastle. Each workshop is situated on or close by the famous Causeway Coastal Route.
By visiting each of the Économusée artisan workshops, tourists and visitors will gain an enhanced experience, learn about the history of the craft and the business, the enthusiasm of the artist along with the added opportunity of meeting the artisans face to face and discovering the beauty and authenticity of the products made and sold onsite.
Each Économusée artisan has their own story to share; this is illustrated with storyboards, carefully mapped throughout the workshops to capture the journey, the history, craft and skill of the artist.
