August 2011 was Cork Craft Month.
Across the city and county, exhibitions, craft fairs, workshops and other events celebrated Irish and especially Cork based crafters.
This weekend, I visited a few exhibitions in galleries and the Craft Fair in Kinsale’s Old Mill:
- designworks studio
As always, I admired the work of Tuula Harrington, Rachel McKnight and other artists. I especially loved Roger Bennett’s work.
- The Lavit Gallery where I admired the little rabbits made by Christina Jasmin Roser
and the Amorous Love Spoons from Lesley Stothers.
- The Wandesford Quay Gallery where I fell in love with Anne Kiely‘s chair and cushions
It made me realise once more how lucky we are to have such talented artists and crafters here…
