CCOI Craft Workers & Visual Artists Insurance

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: 
  • Demonstrations, teaching and workshops specifically related to your craft.
  • Cover on Stock, Equipment, machinery, own goods in transit, buildings, money.
  • Products liability cover extensions for USA/Canada
  • Employer's liability
  • Personal Accident
Please contact us for a proposal form.
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?

  • Areas
Does the policy cover just Ireland or other countries too?

  • Limits

    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.

  • Property
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.
