The York Festival presents a fascinating program of Rare & Endangered Crafts for the inaugural Indian Ocean Craft Triennial.
A diverse range of traditional and contemporary approaches to craft-making including the Sandalwood Letterpress Print Museum, the Embroiderers Guild of WA, fibre weaving, book-binding, net-making, indigenous crafts, clockmaking, jewellery, and more.
Visit York Festival for full details of our program of exhibitions, workshops, artist talks, demonstrations, and tours.

York is the oldest inland town in WA and is a short 1-hour drive east of Perth – perfect for a day trip or to stay over for a few days. Springtime is an especially lovely time to visit – as the wildflowers and canola fields are in bloom.

Events vary in date and time across the festival. Check The York Festival website for up-to-date details.
