The winner of Craft Master 2013 was decided upon by Sonya Lennon and Brian McGee, Head of Market Development at the Crafts Council of Ireland. They were joined for the final episode by two of Ireland's top designers, Louise Kennedy and Paul Costelloe.
The winning apprentice of the series will be named Craft Master 2013 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!
Craft Master is an original format produced by Big Mountain Productions for both the Broadcast Authority of Ireland (BAI) and RTÉ. The series was produced in collaboration with the Crafts Council of Ireland.
