The winner of Craft Master 2011 was decided upon by the panel of resident judges - Brian McGee, Head of Market Development at the Crafts Council of Ireland and Derek McGarry, President of the Institute of Designers in Ireland and Assistant to the Head of Faculty of Design at the National College of Art and Design. They were joined for the final episode by two of Ireland's top designers, Louise Kennedy and Paul Costelloe. Viewers of the series will finally discover who has been the lucky winner of the title Craft Master 2011.

The winner of the series will be named Craft Master 2011 and will receive a stand at Showcase - Ireland's Creative Expo, which is the country's largest annual international trade fair and the most important sales event of the year for the exhibiting designers, manufacturers and craftspeople. The event attracts more than 5,500 retail buyers to the RDS in Dublin from Ireland and over 17 countries around the world, all seeking out the best of Irish fashion, jewellery, giftware and interiors products. With such a fantastic prize up for grabs, each apprentice will have to pull out all the stops to produce a unique piece of craft to secure a place in the final!
