Design & Crafts Council of Ireland's Education Panel

The Design & Crafts Council of Ireland's (DCCoI) Education Panel is a key resource that assists in the successful delivery and development of our education programmes.

The Education Panel is an important resource of experienced designers and craftspeople who are passionate about their practice and committed to sharing their expertise with others.

The Education Panel deliver educational projects for people of all ages and abilities. The reach of the panel is wide with makers from across Ireland represented. Activities include school's programmes, demonstrations, practical workshops and talks. All DCCoI Education Panel members are vetted and child protection trained. DCCoI also provide annual subsidised Continued Professional Development (CPD) for the panel. This CPD is designed to keep panel members up to date with best practice, provide opportunities for them to up skill in facilitation and delivery of educational activities, and importantly to network with their peers.


Looking for a facilitator for your organisation or event?

The details of many members of the DCCoI Education panel are available online. You are free to contact a panel member and offer them a project or piece of work which is outside of their activities with the DCCoI. This arrangement is between you and the maker, DCCoI will not act as an intermediary unless it is an agreed partnership project.

Becoming part of the DCCoI Education Panel:

The DCCoI invest a lot in the Education Panel and as such we only update the DCCoI Education Panel approximately every three years. This is done through an open call process. On occasion a smaller call may be issued where DCCoI are seeking makers in a particular area or working in a specific craft/design discipline.
