We have created many specialised insurance products including the CCOI Craft Insurance Scheme and Visual Artists Insurance Scheme. These are specifically for companies, visual artists and crafts people who manufacture and sell their products from home, studio, workshop or retail outlet. As a major part of the artists' and craft worker's business is showing their wares, our insurance policy covers attendance at all tradeshows, exhibitions and farmers markets.
This policy is a uniquely designed insurance product to address the specific risks of Craft Traders and Padraic Smith has pioneered this policy in Ireland.
The cover provides Public/Products liability limit of indemnity of €6.5M at exhibitions, trade shows and markets. Cover applies anywhere in Ireland & the UK, with no limit to the number of shows you can attend.
Premiums start from €135.00 per year
We can also extend cover to include:

When researching for Artists and Craft Workers Insurance, think about:
- Level of Cover
Make sure you get the highest level of cover possible.
- Public Liability
Are you covered for accidents on your booth at tradeshows, events, demos and workshops?
- Product Liability
Are you covered against your product malfunctioning/breaking and harming an individual?
Does the policy cover just Ireland or other countries too?
Are strict limits imposed on the number of shows and events you can attend? Look for flexibility with a policy with no limits on show attendance.
Is your studio or workshop covered? Does the policy cover you against being unable to work in your premises due to flood, fire, etc?
- Stock/Machinery & Goods In Transit
Does the policy provide cover for your stock and machinery. What about your goods/equipment when in transit?
- Employer's Liability
Does the policy provide this and at what level of cover? Look for the highest possible (currently at €13M)
- Personal Accident
What if you could no longer work due to a serious injury at work? Will the policy provide an ongoing salary and for how long?
- Demos & Teaching
Does your policy cover only you and your staff, meaning that you cannot have non-employees in your premises? This is very important if you wish to run demos and workshop sessions to cover against injuries to participants.
