Économusée (Artisan Workshop)
Learn about the traditional craft of smoking food, how it links us to our past and how it has been adapted for the modern world.
We are honoured to be an "Artisans at Work" Économusée in Northern Ireland.
The ÉCONOMUSÉE concept (meaning 'economic / working museum') was developed in Québec, Canada. Artisans of all kinds of traditional crafts have been brought together into an extensive and exciting international network.
The mission of the ÉCONOMUSÉE network is to promote and keep alive traditional crafts and knowledge, whilst ensuring economic growth within rural communities. It enables artisans worldwide to open their workshops, offering the public an interactive, recreational and enriching experience.
Why not take some time off the beaten track and pay a visit to these fascinating Économusees in Northern Ireland where you can learn so much about each craft from the artisans themselves:
Broighter Gold Rapeseed Oil in Limavady
Broughgammon Farm in Ballycastle
Hillstown Brewery in Ahoghill
Hot Milk Forge in Martinstown
Scullion Hurls in Loughgiel
Steenson’s Jewellers in Glenarm, and
Ursa Minor Bakehouse in Ballycastle
