About

Promoting the Crafts Sector in the Maltese Islands, thereby contributing to the revival, preservation, and long-term sustainability of local artisan skills.

Set up in 2021, the Malta Crafts Foundation embarks on wide-ranging initiatives that seek to generate interest and awareness not only among visiting tourists, but also among the local population especially among students and young people.
