The World Crafts Council – Europe is one of the five regional branches (Africa, Asia, Latin America, North America and Europe) of the World Crafts Council, an international, non-governmental, non-profit organisation recognised by UNESCO, founded in 1964. Its general objectives are to strengthen the status of crafts as a vital part of cultural and economic life, to promote a sense of fellowship among the craftspeople of the world and to offer them encouragement, help and advice.
