Creative Makers Galway will present a pop-up shop throughout the Galway International Arts Festival at the mall in the Cornstore from 17-29 July. Following on from the successful 2017 pop-up shop, this will also feature work by established designers and makers for the duration of the Festival.
There will be a variety of beautiful products and gifts on offer including pottery, woodturning, soaps, handbags, candles, ceramics, jewellery, art, prints, greeting cards, wooden crafts, quilts, notebooks, calendars and clothing.
The pop up shop will feature a host of creative designers including Ambrose & Brid O’Halloran Woodturning, Berina Kelly Jewellery, Ciara O’Neill, Fiain, Glassix, Lorraine Fletcher Art Studio, Maysonbrook, Pat Flannery Artist, Peppermint, QBU, The Owl Tree, Scents of Galway and Virtue Shine.
There will be the opportunity to view and purchase directly from the talented makers over two weeks, and to hear the inspiration behind their creations.
It promises to be wonderful, informal showcase for new Irish collections and pieces, whilst also providing an insight into the progress and processes achieved by each designer.
Creative Makers Galway was established in 2016 by those who had participated in the Design & Craft Council of Ireland’s Building Craft & Design Enterprise programme, which ran in Galway that year for the first time outside Dublin. As a result of discussions held during workshops from the programme, all of the graduates expressed a desire to showcase their work locally, with the support of the LEO Galway, Creative Ireland and the DCCoI.
