The initiative is promoted by the School of Industrial Organization (EOI), public foundation and first business school in Spain, its area of promotion of crafts, melt you, Y Trade and Art, Organization of Artisans of Spain.

For a week, free activities will bring visitors and the curious of all ages closer to the sphere of craft creation. Fairs, open days in workshops, live demonstrations, exhibitions, children's activities... Seven days around crafts, in which artists who wish to show their creations and share their work procedures with the public are invited to participate.

The European Crafts Days have their origin in Les Journées Européennes des Métiers d'Art, which organizes in France the National Institute of Métiers d'Art (INMA) since 2002. Spain soon joined the project and both countries present a more extensive program of activities. This year, this holiday is celebrated simultaneously in 18 countries.
