4 days in Vilnius

CraftVILNIUS is already the 3 rd international fair of applied art which invites people to spend four days with contemporary artists of applied art, learn about their creative world and unique works. The event, during which the artists will be brought together into a single community, will seek to highlight the importance of individuality, genuineness, and professionalism and to draw up the guidelines on Lithuanian and global modern applied art and design. Artists from Lithuania, Latvia, Sweden, Turkey, Poland, Israel, Russia, Estonia and Germany will present their pieces of work made of textile, glass, furniture, pottery, leather, and jewels.
